Jesus wonderfully invites us to Ask, Seek and Knock. During our Sage Conversations with Jesus, we hope to provide a space where we can bring the questions we may have, some of the answers we are looking for or frustrations we might have with life and/or faith in Jesus. Some of the conversations may be difficult to discuss or are divisive topics. Our hope is to seek the wisdom of Jesus, to hear from him and experience his gentle heart and ways. During these conversations, we may end not agreeing and that's okay. Our goal is to not win an argument but hopefully hear what Jesus has to say about some of the difficult questions we may have in this life.

I like jesus but not paul: conversation with Jesus and Paul

2/11 (Fri) - 6:00p to 9:00p

2/12 (Sat) - 8:30a to 12:00p

Location: Eswine's Home

Some of us may have difficulty with some of the teaching of Paul. He can come across as homophobic, judgmental and/or chauvinistic. Does Paul move away from the teachings and ways of Jesus? Or are Paul's writings based on the teachings of Jesus? We are excited to invite Dr David Chapman (Professor of New Testament Studies at Covenant Seminary) to help us with this discussion.

Limit 12 people

There is a lot pain, hurt, confusion, fear, anger, judgment around Christians and sexuality. We want to take a relational risk together by taking a step in having this difficult conversation.
