A year ago, President Brian Blount kicked off an extremely successful first series of Union Sunday with a 12-lesson study on Revelation. A renowned scholar on the book of Revelation, Dr. Blount is the author of the Commentary on Revelation for Westminster John Knox Press’s New Testament Library Series. His publication was selected as the top reference book of 2009 by the Academy of Parish Clergy.
The second series, Discovering Faith, is now available. Ten members of the faculty and staff — Assistant Professor of Old Testament Samuel L. Adams, Associate Professor of Biblical Languages E. Carson Brisson, Affiliate Assistant Professor of Christian Education Cindy Kissel-Ito, Dean of the Center for Ministry and Leadership Development Kenneth J. McFayden, Director of the Asian American Center for Ministry and Mission Syngman Rhee, Associate Professor of Bible Rodney Sadler, Professor of Pastoral Theology Charles E. Brown, Vice-President for Advancement Richard Wong, Professor of New Testament John T. Carroll, and Associate Professor of Preaching and Pastoral Leadership Richard Boyce—explore faith in relation to Biblical context.
Union Sunday, an innovative video curriculum, was created to provide spiritual nurturing to churches, especially churches without a called pastor. Biblical and theological knowledge, grounded in the reformed tradition, is shared with Sunday school classrooms, Bible study groups and youth. The seminary recognizes that forming future leaders not only means training strong pastors and Christian educators, but also providing resources for people in the pews.
The Union Sunday Study Series is appropriate for adult Sunday School, Bible study groups, and personal Bible study. It is available as a download or on DVD. To place an order or to find out more about Union Sunday, go to www.unionsunday.org.
