“Our Changing Understandings of God, our Source and our Home.” Scripture gives us many different and even conflicting images of God. History of religious beliefs also give us different ways to describe and to approach God. Even within the Catholic tradition there are different theologies (God-talks). We relate to God in very different personal ways throughout our lives. How can we differentiate and discern true from false or incomplete images of God? Fr John will look at stories from the Bible and the history of Christianity to help us have a stronger belief in God who is all Merciful, Beauty, Peace and Simple Goodness. Offering: $475, Commuters: $250 ($100 Non-refundable deposit required.)
