This series of adult faith formation opportunities is designed particularly for adults and young adults who may or may not be actively participating in a faith tradition but have questions about the fundamental issues upon which religious faith and religious practice are based.
The programs take place in a comfortable, inter-active learning environment which encourages discussion and reflection. Times and dates for programs are generally determined by the participants.

Many of us take faith for granted, but for a growing number of people it is no longer obvious that religious faith makes any difference in their everyday lives. This program is designed for anyone -- life-long believers and skeptics alike -- who has ever wondered if it makes sense to believe or has struggled to explain why they believe. It will examine critical questions like:
• what faith is ... and what faith is not;
• the relationship between faith, reason and science;
• the relationship between faith, superstition and the "new atheism;"
• how faith grows and matures in adults;
• the characteristics of a reasonable, mature adult faith.
