There will be input, stories and engagement with the topics.

THE SERIES SCHEDULE
PART 1. Saturday May 26
Introduction: the challenges or questions people have. In the context of Australia today, an approach that is neither defensive nor aggressive, but confessional. Examples from history.
PART 2, Saturday June 2
What the Christian faith has contributed to society. The new atheism of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens and the older atheism of Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzche and Freud. Charles Darwin and the relation between science, faith and the Bible.
PART 3, Saturday June 16
Typical criticisms of Christianity, such as the accusation of hypocrisy and the problem of suffering. Faith-sharing processes with Rev Dr Ian Robinson. Points of contact as we seek to commend the faith with others.
Come for one, two or three lectures – only $20 for the series. Register – HERE
Who should attend? Great for all people in our Christian communities, sharing faith, lay ministry, or with interests in mission or leaderships at any level.
At COMMENDING THE FAITH, we look for ways in which we can speak about our faith in Christ in a variety of Christian and cultural contexts and what we can learn from science, faith and the bible.
The COMMENDING THE FAITH lecture series is for Christian people of any age group (don’t have to be Uniting) who are keen to understand, explore and discuss!
