Educational Event

“Why People Hate Organized Religion”
Presented by Brian McLaren
We don’t know if the organized religion industry is in for a total collapse, like, say, the banking industry in 2008 or the stock market in 1929 – or the Jerusalem Temple in AD 70. There may be catastrophic collapses ahead, but if the good news of death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus teaches us anything, it teaches us that the end of the world as we know it isn’t the end of the world as God sees it.
Whatever happens, our work is the same, and we can’t lose hope.
