Adult Formation

SURPRISED BY HOPE - NT WRIGHT, April 12 - May 17 (6 sessions), One of the world's top biblical scholars and Bishop of Durham in the Church of England reveals in six transforming, faith-inspiring sessions the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is. What is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there? In what ways does God intend for us to experience hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us?
