Sunday Forum

Sundays at 10:00 a.m. online.

October will be a month about “conscience.” After all, Luther’s famous speech before the Council at Wurms concluded with these words; “it cannot be either safe or honest for a Christian to speak against his conscience. Here I stand; I cannot do otherwise; God help me! Amen.”

But what is “conscience”?  On October 18, Dr. Theo Dieter, an eminent Lutheran theologian and ecumenical leader from Strasbourg, France will join our Sunday Forum for a lively wrap-up conversation. October: a lively month for thinking about what makes for faithful decisions.

If you would like the link to the meeting please contact us at ctk@ctkelc.org.

Wednesday Evening Online, 7:00 p.m.

For most of their history, the world’s religious traditions have regarded these texts as tools that enable the individual to connect with the divine, to experience a different level of consciousness, and to help them engage with the world in more meaningful and compassionate ways. At a time of intolerance and mutual incomprehension, The Lost Art of Scripture shines fresh light on the world’s major religions to help us build bridges between faiths and rediscover a creative and spiritual engagement with holy texts.”  Continue reading

She spent seven years researching the Mayflower story from both the perspective of her English ancestors who sailed on the ship and the Natives who worked out a treaty with them. Mayflower Chronicles: The Tale of Two Cultures will be out in October. Join us to learn more from the author herself as we welcome Kathy back to CTK in this Zoom forum. Visit Pr. Haueisen’s website.
