Christian Ethics in a World Gone Mad (past)

What is the role of a Christian in a world gone mad? Join Randy Harris for a class you won’t forget: “Christian Ethics in a World Gone Mad: How to Cope and Even Thrive.”

In an effort to navigate today’s choppy ethical landscape, Randy will take participants through a series of challenging topics that warrant deep reflection and a good sense of humor! This workshop is designed especially for adults who want to go a little deeper into contemporary issues than a normal Bible class setting would allow.

Held in ACU’s Hunter Welcome Center, it will consist of five 90-minute sessions beginning Aug. 4 at 1:30 p.m. and concluding at noon on Aug. 5. The cost for the class is $60, which covers meals, snacks, and handout materials. Register by July 31.

Harris is the spiritual director for the College of Biblical Studies at ACU and a popular instructor of Bible, missions and ministry. He is the author or co-author of several books, including Daring Faith, Living Jesus, and Life Work. He holds degrees from Harding University, Harding Graduate School of Religion and Syracuse University. His areas of expertise are modern theology and ethics.
