Educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world.


Turn, Turn, Turn—Keeping the Faith through All of Life’s Seasons, Aug. 1-4


Decatur, GA.—“Turn, Turn Turn: Keeping Our Faith New through All Seasons of Life” is the theme for Columbia Theological Seminary’s Summer Lay Scholars seminar. The annual event, held on Columbia’s campus, begins Monday evening, August 1, and concludes with lunch on Thursday, August 4. The seminar offers creative ways to keep faith alive and renewed through all ages, stages, and crises of life—including life’s dull moments and those mountain-top experiences. As part of their classroom work, participants will study the Bible together, do experiential exercises, and learn how human development and world events shape the life of faith; for example, how faith is experienced differently as children, young people, and in adulthood. Course leaders include faculty members Kathy Dawson, assistant professor of Christian education; Bill Harkins, assistant professor of pastor theology and care; and Dent Davis, dean and vice president of Lifelong Learning. Cost is $275 for commuters and $295 for overnighters (includes some meals). Lodging is available on campus at an additional cost. For more information or to register, call 404-687-4577 or email Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
