March 4 and 11
Ruth and Esther: Faith in Action
Dr. Michael Graves, Armerding Professor of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College

March 11: Esther is a sensational narrative filled with extreme dangers and dramatic reversals. What does Esther have to say about what people should value, and how they should act? Where is God in this narrative? We will discuss these questions in the book of Esther and in our world today.   In the Seminar Room.

March 11 and 18
Questions We're Afraid to Ask
Gordon Straw, Associate Professor and Cornelsen Chair of Spiritual Formation
and Coordinator of Candidacy, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago

This conversational, participant-driven series will explore the nature of theology, why everyone is a theologian, and the "rules" of theology. This is an opportunity to ask those questions you might feel you should already know the "correct" answer to: What does it mean to be incarnated (in birth or death)? Can I have doubts? What about miracles? What if my prayers "don't work"? Do better people have more prosperous lives? Where do we go when we die? What is heaven? What is hell?
