The Christian Life Isn’t What You Think It Is: Why Being a Christian is like Riffing on a 12-Bar Blues!
February 11, 2019 | 6:30-8:00 PM | Bozeman, MT
Popular modern sentiment has a bias against institutionalized religious belief, whether Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, or any one of many other expressions of faith in God, or gods. Truth be told, the judgment of popular culture is too often naïve with regards to faith. This lecture addresses the very nature of the Christian life—some of our misconceived assumptions, and how those assumptions do not serve our faith—and suggests a better way of living the Christian life.
