Robin Meyers to Speak in Cincinnati
Author of Saving Jesus from the Church
“Condemnation feels good and it is now a staple of religion, politics, and the media (both left and right), but it changes nothing. Compassion, on the other hand, changes everything.”
“If the church is to survive as a place where head and heart are equal partners in faith, then we will need to commit ourselves once again not to the worship of Christ, but to the imitation of Jesus. His invitation was not to believe, but to follow.”
The above passages drawn from the Rev. Dr. Robin Meyers’ best-selling book Saving Jesus from the Church: How to Stop Worshiping Christ and Start Following Jesus are provocative. And Meyers will be speaking in Cincinnati, thanks to a partnership between Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church and Christ Church Cathedral, on September 16 and 17.
He will give a lecture, “From Galilean Sage to Supernatural Savior: Or How I Became a Heretic with Help from Jesus,” at the cathedral on Friday, September 16, at 7 pm. On Saturday morning, September 17, he will offer a two-part program, beginning at 9:00 am. The first session is entitled “God Talk: How Quantum Physics is Redefining ‘Almighty.’” The second session is “The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus.”
Meyers is the nationally known senior pastor of the Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City and a fellow of the Jesus Seminar. He is also a professor of social justice at Oklahoma City University.
All three presentations are free-of-charge, but registration is requested for the Saturday programs. For more information, and to make your reservation, go to mwpc-church.org/robin-meyers.
