Unitarian Community beginning new study
Dr. Chuck Queen, senior minister of Immanuel Baptist Church, will lead a study series designed to encourage participants to examine questions about religion in the light of current scholarship at the Unitarian Universalist Community of Frankfort beginning Thursday.
Queen will present the DVD program “Living the Questions,” which features the views of theological scholars and leaders from a wide range of Christian denominations. The video segments offer an excellent introduction to progressive Christian themes that will spark questions and discussion.

Each segment is self-contained, so participants do not necessarily have to attend every session. Advance registration is not required. For more information, call John Seybold at 502-695-7438.
