Canon, Creed, Confession, Comparative Theology
Fall of 2011 and will last 14 weeks, Tuesdays at 5 p.m. at Nightbird Books. The class will be taught by Pastor Clint Schnekloth with Jon Amos and Tom Stockland, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Fayetteville.
The concept: All communities can benefit from continued conversation about how Scripture functions as a holy text for community, how the creeds function as a hermeneutical key for reading Scripture, and how being confessional contributes further to being authentic in conversation, and finally how comparative theology opens us to deep learning across religious borders.
