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.

CHARIS hosts conversations of and about Churches of Christ. The website is intended to support education for Christian life and community through contemporary discussions and historical sources that variously witness to the gifts (“charis”) of God among Churches of Christ, especially their plea for visible unity among Christians through ongoing renewal and restoration of Scriptural beliefs and practices among God’s people.

The CHARIS website is supported by Abilene Christian University (Abilene, TX, USA), the Center for Heritage and Renewal in Spirituality (CHARIS) at ACU. The purpose of CHARIS at ACU is to seek God’s blessings for a healthy relationship between the Christian college/university – its faculty, staff, and students – and the church heritage that gives identity and meaning to such a school. This underlying concern for Christian colleges/universities, and their relationship to the churches, is reflected in the form and content of the CHARIS website.
