Adult Bible Study: Lutheranism 101

  • Prayer
  • The works of unbelievers
  • Early Lutheranism
  • End times predictions

Book Club: The Picture of Dorian Gray

From the back cover: “In true Faustian tradition Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray tells the tale of a young man who sells his soul to the devil in return for youthful immortality, only to discover that the “devil’s bargain” is no bargain at all. “What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” When Dorian Gray is asked this question he knows the answer. He has learned his lesson the hard way and has destroyed the lives of others into the bargain. The moral is inescapable, making The Picture of Dorian Gray more than merely a classic of Victorian literature. It is a classic of Christian literature also.”

Day & Time: Sunday, January 23 at 3:30 PM
Location: Pastor Miller’s home (see Church Directory)
