Upcoming Adult Education: After a short break from Adult Education we will begin on Sunday, May 8 with the topic of the Book of Revelation. A friend of mine—Frederick Schmidt—says “if people read the Book of Revelation at all, they read it with the-Bible-as-roadmap-to-the future view. Over the years that approach has, in turn, spawned a left-behind spirituality and theology, lending still more apparent authority to the approach. Preoccupation with who will and who will not be delivered in ‘the last days’ has to be ‘left behind’ if others are to move into heaven.” In other words, most of us misunderstand what this book is about and what some of its strange language is about.
Come and participate in this study—it promises to be interesting to all of us. 9 a.m., Sunday, beginning on May 8.
