WBS Thurs PM – Surprised by Paradox (Onsite)

March 11 @ 6:00 pm

Thursdays, Feb. 11–Mar. 11, 6–7:30 p.m.
Surprised by Paradox: The Promise of “And” in an Either-Or-World by Jen Pollock Michel, with Emily Pilkington

In our current cultural moment, the idea of holding two ideas in tension feels like a lost art. Tribalism demands that we choose and defend one option in an either/or statement. We often prefer to distill complex ideas into over-simplified statements leaving little room for nuance, listening, or the both/and of paradox.

In this five-week class, we’ll discuss Surprised by Paradox by Jen Pollock Michel and look for places that God calls his people to the hard work of wrestling with “and”. We’ll spend special focused time studying the following paradoxes found in Scripture: the Incarnation, the Kingdom of God, Grace, and Lament.
