Doubt: Season 2 | April 19 - May 10, 2019
Even as faith endures in our secular age, believing doesn’t come easy. Faith is fraught; confession is haunted by an inescapable sense of its contestability. We don’t believe instead of doubting; we believe while doubting. We’re all Thomas now.
- James K.A. Smith
Doubt has rarely been a comfortable word amongst Christians in recent history. It’s not that it’s disliked, so much as opposed. This isn’t a biblical position though. Doubt is a necessary feature of being human. So a faith or religion that doesn’t have space for uncertainty won’t have space for humans. Fortunately for us, the central biblical story is that of a human called Jesus.
We return to this series as secular society increasingly redraws the maps of what it means to have a meaningful faith today. We want to explore what it looks like to have faith and why that might still make sense.
For each series we want to offer a few optional resources that you might want to read and explore to deepen your understanding of the subjects covered in this series. Some of the reading will overlap with other series throughout the year and our house church program.
