Welcome to Southminster... A safe and challenging place to grow, explore, question and make a difference.

The Christian Gospel Discussion

Tuesday evenings beginning October 8th from 7-9 pm in Room 7, John will lead a study of Dr. David Ray Griffin’s book, The Christian Gospel for Americans: A Systematic Theology. Please attend and invite others. Do purchase and read the book. Not only is it an excellent introduction to Christianity from a Process Theology perspective, but it is also a summons to resist the American Empire.

  • Oct. 8th— God, the Bible, and Humanity
  • Oct. 15th— The Prophets, Jesus, and Other Religions
  • Oct. 22nd— Sin and the Demonic
  • Oct. 29th— Salvation and the Reign of God; Morality and the Christian Community
