St. Charles: Moderated discussion at church on existence of Jesus
The evening of March 10, two friends — one a Christian and the other an atheist — will bring to the public the discussion they usually have while eating breakfast together. “Jesus: Fact or Fiction?” explores the topic of arguably the most controversial figure who ever existed — or did he? It will feature two “average Joes” having a peaceful dialogue in a world that seems to have forgotten the art of civil discourse. It will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Hosanna! Lutheran Church, 36W925 Red Gate Road.
This is not a debate but rather a moderated discussion. There will be an opportunity for the audience to respond and ask questions during the second part of this free event.
