Liberalism, the Church, and the Unreality of God

Our next monthly meeting will be held on Friday, October 14th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “Liberalism, the Church, and the Unreality of God” by Larry Chapp from God and the Crisis of Meaning (Volume 48.3).

Here is an excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
Larry Chapp, in “Liberalism, the Church, and the Unreality of God,” argues that modernity presents unprecedented obstacles to an integrated living-out of the Christian faith, and that it therefore calls for a radical response on the part of the Church. Liberalism, Chapp holds, erodes a sense for God’s presence in and significance for the whole of human life. This thinning out of religion can ultimately only be answered by Christians carrying out in practice a lifelong glorification of God’s reality in a concrete community. “In reality, a Christian must affirm that the execution and Resurrection of Jesus are the most public events in history insofar as they reveal to us the deepest structure of the really real.”

We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. The Kateri Room is on your right before enter the church proper.

I think our experiment with sitting in a circle in person worked well. Those joining on zoom where able to hear everyone but not necessarily see everyone.
