Adult Sunday School with TED

October 1 @ 4:00 pm - October 3 @ 5:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 4:00pm on day First of the month, repeating until December 3, 2017

Remember Sunday school? This is different, but not just because it is in the late afternoon. Join us in a once-monthly “Adult Sunday School” featuring internationally renowned TED talks on a variety of religious topics relevant to UCG members. Each session will feature a 20-minute video followed by 30 minutes of large/ small group discussion. We will be able to continue our discussion during the “people’s potluck.” Open to all, regardless of your personal theology; it’s not just for agnostics anymore! Each session stands alone and preparation is not necessary

Among the provocative topics we may be listening to and discussing:

“Religion, Evolution, and the Ecstasy of Self-Transcendence” (J. Haidt)

“When People of Muslim Heritage Challenge Fundamentalism”

(Karima Bennoume)

“My Year of Living Biblically” (AJ Jacobs)

“We Can Be Buddhas” (Robert Thurman)

“The Charter for Compassion” (Karen Armstrong)

“The Doubt Essential to Faith” (Lesley Hazelton)

Leaders: Paul and Reisa George
Dates: First Sundays in October, November and December
Time: 4:00pm – 5:15pm
Place: Reimer Hall
