At Smoke Rise we value discovering different voices and learning through biblical scholarship. John Shelby Spong, retired Episcopal Bishop, biblical scholar and author, will be speaking at Inman United Methodist Church in Inman, SC. On Sunday, September 20th at 7pm. You may remember Pastor Chris mentioning him as his preaching professor at Harvard Divinity School in a recent sermon. If you are interested in going with a group to experience Bishop Spong’s teaching, please contact Colin Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kathy Dobbins (email@example.com) by September 17th. The drive is approximately 2 ½ hours. Transportation will be arranged.
