Faith Conversation for Lent
A Faith Conversation for Lent at Canton Center Church ~ WHEN GOD FALLS OFF THE CEILING
Thurs., Mar. 23, 10:30 a.m.
In a 2020 book called Saving God from Religion, UCC pastor, teacher and writer Robin Meyers tells about a dream he had where Michelangelo’s famous painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the one where God’s and Adam’s outstretched hands reach toward each other but don’t quite touch, falls to the floor and shatters. He uses this as a metaphor for thinking about how traditional images and understandings of God have likewise come crashing down for so much of the modern world, giving organized religion “a God crisis” and leaving us in need of new ways of relating to the sacred and each other. We’ll read one chapter of the book (will be made available as a handout) as a prompt for our conversation together about our own thinking/re-thinking of traditional concepts of God.
Please sign up by letting Rev. Brenda know of your interest, and to receive the handout: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 860-693-4581.
