Event description
A live, interactive, discussion of George MacDonald's Unspoken Sermons with Paul Young, Baxter Kruger, and John MacMurray.

About this Event

George MacDonald was a Scottish author, poet and Christian minister. Though best known as a pioneer in the field of modern fantasy literature, our discussion will focus on his Unspoken Sermons.

These sermons had a profound impact on C. S. Lewis who said of MacDonald, "I know hardly any other writer who seems to be closer, or more continually close, to the Spirit of Christ Himself." They have also had a long, significant influence in shaping the thinking of the three primary panelists Paul Young, Baxter Kruger, and John MacMurray as well as the guest panelists that will 'drop in' occasionally.

Each week, in a live 60 minute format, our panelists will be exploring and discussing the beauty and meaning of 32 of MacDonald's sermons. These sessions will immediately be followed by a 30 minute live Q&R.

This event will be in two, 8 week parts.

Part 1 - 8 weeks — May 5 - June 23

Part 2 - 8 weeks — Sept 8 - Oct 27

Each part is a separate event. In order to participate in both parts you must register for both parts of the event.

Registration is now open for Part 1.

Registration for Part 2 will open immediately following the conclusion of Part 1 on June 23.

All sessions will be on Wednesdays, 4:00-5:30PM Pacific Time.

Every session of both Parts will be video recorded. The recordings will be available 48 hours after the live webinar. These are free only to those registered for the event.

A private Facebook page will be created where the class can continue the conversation. Panelists will also visit the page from time to time contributing to the discussion.

Cost

We have always believed money should never be the barrier that prevents people from participating in our events. And we are acutely aware that because of the pandemic the past year has been financially difficult for many.

Yet, at the same time, the men and women who teach, facilitate and lead the discussions need to be paid for their work. It's how many of us actually provide for our families.

Consequently, tickets for this event will be purchased on a donation basis. There is no set fee to participate.

***When you proceed to purchase your ticket you will see several "suggested donations". You can choose any one of these options OR you can fill in your own donation amount under the heading of "Other".

Your donation will secure:

  1. Admission to all 8 weeks of live discussion
  2. Unrestricted access to the video recordings of each session
  3. Handouts and other materials
  4. Access to the private Facebook group
