Sept. 27—*YES, NO, and Let’s talk!  at St. Peter’s Verona (by Rev. Diane Wheatley).  Explore boundaries in all areas of life and tips for establishing better boundaries.  (Meets Deacon Boundary Training requirement). 

Oct. 18—*WHY PAUL MATTERSThe Creative Genius of the Apostles the Gentiles—Presenter  Rev.Dr.  Mark Lawson, is  Pastor of United Church of Christ in Bayberry (Liverpool), adjunct professor in religious studies at LeMoyne College, and author of Cracking the Book: How to Start Reading the Bible.   The course will be taught at Luther Memorial, North Syracuse.

Because Paul’s letters have been canonized as Scripture, his words have traditionally been given authority equal to the teachings of Christ. On the other hand, since the mid-20th century, Paul has frequently been accused of distorting the original teaching of Christ and laying the groundwork for Christian anti-Semitism, sexism, racism, and homophobia. Contending that the Apostle has been misunderstood and misappropriated by both critics and admirers, Dr. Lawson will place Paul in his religious, cultural, and political context and help participants apprec-iate how his developing theology ensured that the “Way” begun by Jesus would grow into a world religion.

 

Nov. 15—*ASPECTS of WORSHIP—Rev. John Ferrie will kick off learning at 9:30 am.  Then 2 of the following workshops:  A.  Practical Worship Leading Skills;   B.
