Dr. Jack Davis will be presenting at Adult Education three-part series on “Three Great Mysteries of Our Christian Faith: the Holy Spirit; the Trinity; and the Incarnation.”

  • December 12th: “What Do We Really Need to Know about the Trinity?”
  • December 19th: “What Do We Really Need to Know about the Incarnation?” 

These sessions will explore the biblical foundations of these important truths, some of the barriers and misunderstandings about them in church history, and practical ways of enhancing our personal spiritual experience in worship and daily life.     Dr. Davis is the Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor of Theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his most recent book is Practicing the Ordinary Supernatural Presence of God (Cascade Books, 2021).
