What is Sermons in the Round? Sermons in the Round is a forum especially for folks who are unable to attend the Sunday morning Adult Forum discussions because they work, they have infants, they sing in the choir and/or they teach in the Sunday School programs. We will meet monthly at a local social spot, such as a brewery, pizza joint or park to gather, read a sermon “in the round” from a theologian active between the mid-20th century to present, then expand our theological imaginations in our discussion. Those who attend need to be prepared to have locals join us!
For Round 1 we will be taking on Paul Tillich, an German-American Lutheran/Protestant theologian who contributed to Christian thinking in the 1950s and 60s at Union Theological Seminary and Harvard Divinity School. We will be reading his sermon on Psalm 139, “Escape from God.”
