We are a community with heart! We want to journey together on a spiritual path and grow in our faith with God. To learn more about us, feel free to explore our website, give us a call, or join us for worship on Sunday morning. If you haven’t been here before, here are answers to the most common questions.
We all struggle with the level of violence, much of it attributed to God, which appears on the pages of our scriptures. We all wonder how best to respond to family and friends and Christians who insist that the God of the “Old” Testament is violent, while the God of the “New” Testament is loving. You are invited to stop struggling!
Under the leadership of the Reverend Dr. Gary A. Gaudin, South Arm United Church is hosting another marvellous learning opportunity featuring John Dominic Crossan in a Living the Questions DVD-based resource entitled Violence Divine: Overcoming the Bible’s Betrayal of Its Non-Violent God. Crossan is one of the Church’s most engaging progressive thinkers, generating new possibilities in our reading of scripture and ourselves.
This 2016 DVD programme is based on Crossan’s 2015 book How to Read the Bible & Still Be a Christian: Struggling with Divine Violence from Genesis through Revelation (HarperCollins) which would make for wonderful reading between now and the start of the series. It is available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle formats. Tell your family and friends.
The start date is to be determined.
