In the week of July 9 in 2017, I will be teaching a class at Ghost Ranch based on my new book, The Value of Doubt: Why Unanswered Questions, Not Unquestioned Answers, Build Faith. The class will delve into some of the puzzling theological issues that sometimes cause people to lose and/or just question faith. Asking hard questions and expressing our doubts is the way to an authentic faith, I argue in the book. We'll delve into all that.
You can register online for the class, called "Building Faith Through Doubt," here.
For more information about the ranch, click on this Ghost Ranch link. The ranch is a national Presbyterian conference center in northern New Mexico, about an hour north of Santa Fe in the beautiful red rock hills that Georgia O'Keeffe painted so often.
I hope my photo here from Ghost Ranch gives you at least a taste of what you can expect there.
Classes typically meet each morning from 9 until noon and each evening from 7 to 8:30. It's a wonderful, relaxed-but-stimulating atmosphere. The new schedule has people arriving at the ranch on Sunday afternoons with classes starting Monday morning and wrapping up Friday evening.
And, no, you don't have to be a Presbyterian to join us. People of any faith, and none, are welcome. If you have questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
