Barth for Beginners will gather together every other Thursday at 8pm at various locations in Bellingham. See below for the full schedule.
Primarily, we'll be discussing Karl Barth's Dogmatics in Outline. While it's not necessary, it would behoove you to purchase, borrow, and read this short, but dense, work. Don't worry if doesn't all make sense the first time through. That's what the group is for.
Due to the popularity of the group, we'll have two different groups meeting. The material will be the same for each week's gathering. If at all possible, I ask you to pick one group and try to follow that group's schedule.
