Pastor John very excited to be designing a new Men's Bible Study Class which begins Saturday, April 15. The last time we met, it was suggested and agreed upon to study the subject of What Happens After Death? So we will begin this week by looking at the Old Testament readings and discuss how our friends in the Hebrew Faith before Christ thought about what happens after death. Then for the next two meetings we will look at the teachings of Jesus from the New Testament.
Following that, we will look at how this was viewed in the history of the church and how we developed many of our practices surrounding death and in particular funerals. Different denominations have different practices when it comes to funerals.
As we end what will be a great amount of discussion we will also take a look at how death and life after is viewed in other religions such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto and North and South American Indigenous Culture practices.
All are invited. We meet at 8:30 for breakfast at McDonald's and the class begins at 9:00.
