The Jesus Project
Who is Jesus for us?
Who is Jesus for us -- as a community, and for each of us in our individual faith? Over the course of the 2014 - 2015 academic year, we will address this fundamental question by using a variety of approaches to the figure of Jesus. The four gospels will provide our foundation, and that Biblical approach will be augmented by liturgical, historical, mystical, artistic, musical, and literary approaches.
The Jesus Project seeks to make our Biblical and theological knowledge useful in the articulation of our faith in Jesus Christ. How have the faithful before us sought to know Jesus? How can their explorations help us in ours?
The Project is composed of the following elements:
Sunday Forums: A variety of guests and our own clergy will speak at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday.
Small Group curricula: In small groups, parishioners will explore topics such as mystical writings about Jesus, women and Jesus, "the gospel according to me" (articulating our individual narratives of Jesus), and others
The Four Gospels: A Spiritual Discipline: A weekly program of reading the gospels will enrich and complement our Forum readings. This schedule is not related to the forum reading schedule.
