Forum Hour: "The Art of Believing"

The Rev. Dr. Francis H. Wade led a 2-part series on "The Art of Believing" September 14 and 21, 2014.

The basic premise of these conversations is that belief does not just happen. It is not a gift given exclusively to the hopeful or the pious. Good believing includes conscious decisions. Continued believing includes intentional nurture. Informed believing includes a healthy understanding of what our historic covenant with God provides and, in spite of sentimental theologies, does not provide. Believing is an art that can be developed, relished and relied upon. To develop this premise we wil consider these questions:  Is there a God to believe in? If so, what is the nature of God? How do we know? And finally, how do we keep on knowing?

Below are videos of both presentations.
