“The Experience of Belief in the Early 21st Century”
Starts THIS week: Thursdays, Oct 8 & 15 @ 7:00 pm
Location: David and Jennifer Wood’s home, 229 Park Ave, Glencoe.
Faith in God is not as easy as it used to be. Have you ever felt that? The philosopher, Charles Taylor in his book, A Secular Age, explains why. Please join us—there is NO need for you to have read the book or to have attended any of the prior sessions. Each session will be a stand-alone conversation.
