The Pre-Reformation Theologians: Institutionalizing Faith Traditions... We often take church and our faith practices for granted, but for the earliest believers, there were hundreds of years of blending the oral traditions of Christ’s life and mission with their understanding of God through Old Testament writings. Our next series of Adult Discipleship classes will examine some of the church’s earliest theologians and their path of discerning practices and faith tradition that guide us today. This Sunday, Pastor Lisa will introduce us to Athanasius, and in future weeks, we will look at Augustine, Anselm, Francis of Assisi, Aquinas and Catherine of Sienna.
