Theology is the answer we put together from the Bible to explain life’s problems and questions. How does one faithfully put together his or her theology? How might we guard against creating a “Theological Box” for God? Join us on Wednesday evenings as we consider these questions from the vantage point of three events in the life of Jesus found in the Gospel according to John.
August 14: Beyond the Wonder of Surprise (John 2:1-12)
August 21: Beyond the Wonder of Miracle (John 4:46-54)
August 28: Responding to Theological Mystery (John 9:1-41)
