St. Paul’s Adult Formation Committee is pleased to welcome Dr. Natalie Kertes Weaver back to the Adult Forum for another intriguing series of lectures. Please plan to join us for a four-part Lenten series entitled Examining Conscience in Christian Narrative at 10:10 a.m. in the Dining Room.

Dr. Weaver earned her B.A. at John Carroll University, M.A. at Pepperdine University, and Ph.D. at Loyola University Chicago. Her areas of interest and expertise include: feminist theology; theology of suffering; theology of the family; religion and violence; and (inter)sex and theology.

Join us on March 8 for the first session in the series:

Conscience and the Narrative of Crucifixion — This session will explore the function of conscience in the foundational Christian story of the crucifixion of Jesus. Conscience here will be examined as the defining human characteristic of Jesus as he answers his Abba’s purpose for him. Conscience, moreover, will be considered in key characters with whom Jesus interacts in the Bible as they tackle the challenge of following Jesus in his ministry, to his cross, and in the community of hope that follows his human life. The courage of the Gethsemane experience will become a touchstone for Christian conscience in human self-authoring.

Here are the remaining sessions in this series:

March 15: Confession and Testimony as the Per-Formance of Conscience
March 22: Conscience and Conflict in Christian Character(s)
March 29: Christian Story and Public Conscience
