Upcoming events at Incarnation!

RT. REV. JOHN SHELBY SPONG

AUGUST 14TH & 15TH

 Our church’s Sanctuary Lecture Series and the Christian Formation Committee are once again sponsoring the Right Reverend John Shelby Spong, retired Bishop of Newark. He will preach at the 10:30 am service on Sunday, August 14th and will lecture on Monday, August 15th at 7:00 pm.  His theme this year will be “Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy” which is the title of his latest book.  

 

How much of the Gospel portrayal of Jesus is history? How much is Jewish interpretive portrait painting? By placing ourselves into the context of the first century world of the synagogue, the answer to these questions becomes clear. It also opens the Gospels to a whole new dimension of truth far removed from the biblical fundamentalism of our day.

 

Bishop Spong’s sermons and lectures which include a question and answer period are always thought provoking and open up new lines of conversation.  We hope you will join us.
