Event description
Discover Christianity's surprising answer to the good life at this Center for Public Christianity forum featuring Dr. Jonathan Pennington.

About this Event

Followers of Jesus are those who have embraced his promise of abundant life. But if we’re honest, the life Jesus offers is sometimes confused with the beautifully appointed, neatly arranged images out of Better Homes & Gardens – and when it doesn’t quite measure up, we become disillusioned or disappointed.

Join the Center for Public Christianity as Dr. Jonathan Pennington, Biblical scholar, author and teacher, helps us redefine the good life and rediscover Jesus who shows us how to live deeply meaningful and flourishing lives.

Register for our online forum, which will be livestreamed from Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
