I am interested in creating spaces for people to get to steep in some new ideas. This is the difference between hearing lots of interesting new information and then giving yourself a chance to internalize some of those tidbits, let them transform something about the way that you think or believe.
If you have a very "biblical" image of who God is you are not alone. But it can be much easier to move on to more productive ideas about the Divine if you work through it together, with others you already know or who are also seeking new vistas on this part of their lives.
"Marriage in the Bible": Working through Texts Together
This course started out as a weekend intensive ... and then I realized how that is just too much! Let's walk through the relevant texts slowly and thoughtfully together so that you can wrap your own thoughts and words around what to do with them all.

You do not have to agree with Paul. In fact, it is often in your best interest not to!
