About the Event

(Hybrid; 10/3-12/19) Join the cathedral clergy, led by Dean Nathan LeRud, as they provide an overview of what Christians believe, offered in a hybrid session both online & in the Morrison Room. We will use an approach developed by Eugene Rogers, who approaches Christianity primarily as a language - "Christianese," to use his term! Attend the full series, or drop in as you like!  (Read more below)

By learning to “speak Christianese,” we will begin to see our faith in the context of a conversation taking place over two thousand years.
