Weekend with Marcus Borg
Glendale is pleased to co-host an event being held by Second Presbyterian Church in early March. Several of our adult classes have engaged with the work of Marcus Borg--here is a chance to spend Friday and Saturday sessions with him in studies of Moses, Jesus and Paul. Please see the information below, and register for the sessions if you would like to participate by going to www.weekendwithmarcusborg.eventbrite.com.
On the weekend of March 7-9, 2014, Second Presbyterian Church will host the renowned theologian, Dr. Marcus Borg, for three lectures, conversations, a Sunday morning class and worship.
The title of the event is “Seeing Moses, Jesus, and Paul Again.” Borg’s groundbreaking book,Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time has provided a fresh and deeply meaningful way to encounter Jesus and the gospels for thousands of readers for more than two decades. Our series will include Borg’s insights into the figures of Moses and Paul, and what they have meant to the Christian faith.
Dr. Borg has been a major voice in the effort to bring Biblical literacy into the 21st century church. His work continues to provide Christians a broader understanding of the historical, social and political contexts in which our sacred texts were generated. In recent years he has also widened our conversations about spirituality and religion by speaking and writing about the heart of the Christian faith, and its relevance to those seeking deeper understanding in anxious times.
In order to ensure that this event reaches into the spiritual community of Nashville, several local churches have agreed to co-host this event alongside Second Presbyterian Church. These co-host churches are:
First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville
Glendale Baptist Church
New Covenant Christian Church
Otter Creek Church
St. Augustine's Chapel
West Nashville United Methodist Church
Woodmont Christian Church
The event will begin on Friday evening with a lecture (Moses) followed by time for an audience conversation with Dr. Borg. On Saturday, there will be a morning lecture (Jesus) and conversation, lunch, and an afternoon lecture (Paul) and conversation. Tickets will be sold for all Friday and Saturday events ($50), or the Friday lecture only ($10).
