What is the Soul?    

2 part series Sundays June 2 & June 9, 11:15 in the Pierce Room 

The Discipling Team will be hosting “What is the Soul?” over two after-worship discussions, June 2 and June 9.  We would be very pleased if you would join us and share your ideas!

The current Christian understanding of an immortal soul, separable from the body, first came into existence as a result of the powerful influence of Greek thought in the early church.  The early church came to believe God breathed the soul into the body at conception and then it separated again at death.  Curiously, however, no one in the Bible spends much time discussing or opining on just how this all works and what a soul is.

We are going to spend some time discussing our own thoughts and beliefs about the soul, its origins, its existence and its fate.  We will also venture into non-Christian and secular traditions and beliefs to inform parts of our conversation.  We will discuss whether ‘soul’ is a universal attribute of living creatures, or unique to humanity.
