What Just Happened?

Recovering Christian Sanity post-pandemic

Spring 2023 Class Info:
The further removed we are from the COVID-19 pandemic and the social upheaval which accompanied it, the more confusing things can seem looking back. We have questions about truth, authority, and general sanity. We also walk around with emotional wounds from anger, isolation, and more. What do we need? A recovery of Christian sanity, and specifically a recovery of the Christian practice of forgiveness. This class will aim to address these issues, drawing primarily from Timothy Keller's new book Forgive (though we will draw from other resources as well). 


Teachers: Dr. Joseph Minich and Alex Dean

Registration is not required for this class. See dates below.
