Bible Battered, Dogma Bit: Fundamental Injuries

Sometimes we have been unaware of the ways that rigid forms of thought and faith have injured us. Sometimes we are all too aware. Sometimes we are unaware that fundamentalism can arise even among progressives and hurt traditional believers in much the same way that conservative theological fundamentalism has damaged folks of liberal faith.

The Crescent Hill Baptist Church Bible Battered, Dogma Bit ad hoc team will host a time of reading, and sharing our stories. We offer this as an openness for recovery and healing.  All are welcome. Sunday, March 22, 2015 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. in the church parlor.
