For the Friday evening lecture at Christ Church Cathedral, parking can be found at meters on the street or at one of the nearby garages. Because there is a Reds’ game that evening, parking at the Queen City Square Garage, where the cathedral recommends parking for most of its events, will be higher than normal rates ($20). Less expensive parking can be found at the Chemed Center Garage, 430 Main Street (published event charge between $5 and $10), and the “P&G” parking lot run by the Parking Company of America, 300 East Sixth Street (published event charge of $5).
For the Saturday programs, plenty of free parking is available behind Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church.
We are pleased, in collaboration with Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church, to announce a Friday evening lecture on September 16 and a Saturday morning program on September 17 with the Rev. Dr. Robin K. Meyers. The Friday lecture will be at the cathedral. The Saturday program will be in Mt. Washington. (See schedule below.)
Dr. Meyer is the nationally known senior pastor of the Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City. The author of six books, he is also a professor teaching social justice at Oklahoma City University and is a fellow of the Jesus Seminar.
There is no charge for either day, but registration is requested for the Saturday program.
Friday Evening Lecture, September 16,at 7 pm at Christ Church Cathedral
“From Galilean Sage to Supernatural Savior: Or How I Became a Heretic with Help from Jesus”
Christianity has changed from a radical way of life to a set of doctrines, altering the teachings of the historical Jesus. Progressive Christianity calls people back to the radical practice of unconditional love.
Saturday Morning Two-Part Program, September 17, at Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church: A Jenkins/Jones Lecture
Session One: 9 to 10:30 am
“God Talk: How Quantum Physics is Redefining ‘Almighty'”
Scientific discoveries in quantum physics are challenging long-held views about the nature of the Universe. The findings are validating the message of mystics and reuniting science and religion.
Session Two 11 am to 12:30 pm
“The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus”
People of faith have forgotten how countercultural and anti-imperial the Church was at its inception. The renewal of the Church depends upon being subversive again for the cause of love.
