Hot Topics in Theology
Led by Dr. Graham Walker
Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall

What could we learn from Atheism?  How do we reconcile a loving God with the suffering and evil we see in life?  How can doubt be a useful part of our faith?  In your world, how do faith and science get along?  What we believe is important.  What we do with our beliefs matters just as much.  Join us on Wednesday nights as popular SPdLU presenter Graham Walker leads us.
