Life in God: Formation through Reformation A lesser known but important interest of the reformers, such as John Calvin, was a return of the church’s key formative practices to the laity, so that the church could be properly formed in Christ. More than just battles over doctrine, the Reformation of the 16th century was concerned with Christian discipleship, social patterns and embodied disciplines. That is why the Reformation was, among many things, an attempt to recover a vision of the church as a sacred city where worship had to do with a whole way of life under God. Please join Pastor Devlin and Cindy Egeland in the Social Room as we explore together, Life in God: Formation through Reformation.

The second class will meet in the B-level Lounge; Scott and Bob Thomson will teach a class entitled Reformation Science and Faith which will explore the relationship between science and faith and demonstrate that the doctrines of the Reformation—sola scriptura, sola fide, sola gratia, solo Christo, and soli Deo gloria—actually provided the integrated framework for science. You will learn why there were no “Dark Ages”, what really happened to Galileo, and why science arose primarily in the Christian West. See how the early greats of science tried to “think God’s thoughts after Him."
