In this class designed for adults of all ages, every week brings a new adventure. Our regular teachers include lawyers, professors, counselors, a minister, and anyone who has ideas to share. We’ve also heard from college students, artists, a seminarian, pilgrims, people from other faith traditions, and folks who have shared what they are learning as they seek to put a life of faith into practice.
Whether you have questions, answers, both, or neither you can expect wide-ranging information, discussion, and support in the Path Finders’ class. Your ideas, experiences, and knowledge are all welcome. And, if you feel that you don’t have any ideas, experiences, or knowledge you’ll find more than you can imagine as part of this community.
The Story of God Continues with Pat and Paul Kapphahn
Two years ago Pat and Paul began sharing the National Geographic video series with Morgan Freeman about The Story of God. The video series takes the watchers on a journey around the world confronting, exploring, and comparing some of the most enigmatic, challenging, and contentious religious questions of human history.
Throughout the video, Morgan Freeman presents answers to questions like: Who were the first humans to propose the idea of One God? How did worship evolve to the present day? What do Hindus believe? Does the Koran teach the idea of martyrdom? What can Christians learn from Buddha? Is there life after death?
The video helps us visit famous religious sites such as the Vatican, Stonehenge, Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall and a megachurch in Texas. As Morgan Freeman puts it, The story of God is one of the greatest mysteries and most important ideas in the world. For me, this is a personal and enduring quest to understand the divine and I am humbled by the opportunity to take viewers along on this incredible journey.
The Story of God video series turned out to be so popular that it was renewed for a second season. It also turns out that we never even finished the first season. Pat and Paul will keep The Story of God going for these three weeks of classes. After that, continuing the story is up to you.
Each of these three weeks will focus on a different part of The Story of God and will stand on its own. No matter when you attend, these classes will give you the opportunity to hear about the story of God from people from around the world, as well those right next to you. More importantly, you’ll have some time and space to put the story of God into your own words and your own life.
