Adult Forum Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel

Making Sense of the Cross—Dr. Jason Mahn, Augustana College professor of religion. Adult Forum, April 8, 10:30 in the Chapel. During Lent, we sang and heard about the “wondrous cross,” and on “Good Friday” we trembled over how they “crucified my Lord.” But what makes Good Friday good? In this session we will look back on the cross of Lent and consider ways that Christians throughout the centuries have considered why Jesus had to die and what meaning, purpose, and good the cross serves. How can Christians explain the Crucifixion without explaining away its mystery? Dr. Jason Mahn returns to  Adult Forum to address these questions.
