Shrewsbury Parish is a caring community of faithful people created by God, redeemed by the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to joyfully radiate God's love and to live in Christ.
Plan to join us between services and every Sunday that you can. The Adult Forum will tackle a significant challenge for faith communities in this and other countries -- what national columnist and devout Christian Michael Gerson has described as the question of
"how our faith community can serve as a force for good and healing
within a conflicted society."
In a recent talk at Princeton, Gerson Characterized our times as suffering from "POLARIZATION, CONFIRMATION BIAS, AND DEHUMANIZATION" -- all of which can be summarized as "tribalism and division."
Arguably, this condition isn't new to the American civil and civic life. The early 1950's, the 1920's, the pre-Civil War decades, and even the period around the birth of our country also experienced destructive outbursts of these symptoms. And the central beliefs of faith communities often were subverted and twisted to achieve objectives distinctly contrary to the teachings of Jesus -- in each time, on various political and societal sides. Many believe that times of strident division are costly, to the community and to individual souls. It may well be that we as members of the faith community of Jesus can play a positive role for "good and healing" in these critical times Sunday we plan to present a video of Gerson's talk, and together we will have an opportunity to reflect and converse about key points he makes, and start during the next session or two to consider what role Christian may have.
Please do come and join us these Sundays, for a time of listening, conversation, and consideration.
