Adult Christian Studies: The Powers That Be by Walter Wink


The Adult Christian Studies group will tackle a challenging book study as we move through Lent. In our fast-paced secular world, God and theology are second-class citizens. Money, politics, sports, and science seem better suited to the hard realities of our world. As the church steeple has been eclipsed by the skyscraper, so has the divine realm been set aside in favor of more immediate human experience.

The Powers That Be reclaims the divine realm as central to human existence by offering new ways of understanding our world in theological terms. Walter Wink reformulates ancient concepts, such as heaven and hell, angels and demons, principalities and powers, in light of our modern experience. Equipped with this fresh world view, we can embark on a new relationship with God and our world into the next millennium.

The group will meet on Wednesday mornings at 11am in the Fleetwood Room.
