Good Samaritan Class
March 10, 2019
Thoughts on Religion, Morality, and Politics

March 10-24
Room P206

led by Ross Loeser and John Johnson
An old adage is to never talk about the two topics of politics and religion. But the two are inextricably connected, and there is no better place to explore this than the church itself.

How do we use our Christian faith to determine what is right and wrong, and how do we engage in the political process? We cannot compartmentalize our faith; it is meant to influence every part of our lives.

March 10 - Where faith and politics meet
March 17 - How should we live? The ethics of Jesus
March 24 - What would Jesus say to America? 

The Good Samaritan Class is hosting a series using resources from Rev. Adam Hamilton whose United Methodist church is as politically diverse as First Presbyterian. We'll enter this topic together... listening and sharing in a spirit of loving God and loving each other.
