Witnessing to Faith 24/7
Darrell Guder, Moderator
On each of the four Sundays in March, come and hear three of Nassau’s members speak to why it is important to them to live out their faith in their daily lives, and how they attempt to do so. Expect a variety of life stories, challenges, joys, and testimonies to the life to which Christ has called them, and the places to which they understand Christ has sent them to serve the world God loves.
Darrell Guder, a member of Nassau’s Mission and Outreach Committee and an ordained Presbyterian minister, is the Professor of Missional and Ecumenical Theology Emeritus at Princeton Theological Seminary. Guder has a life-long interest in and commitment to forming faith in congregations that reflects one’s understanding of being sent by Christ, as Christ was sent by God, to serve the world God loves. Guder continues to teach all over the world, including regularly at Vancouver Theological Seminary. He is the author of many books, most recently Called to Witness: Doing Missional Theology.

A Romp through the New Testament
Sundays, 9:15 a.m.
True to the definition of romp, “to play boisterously,” Bill Phillippe will move participants quickly throught the 27 books of the New Testament and do it with a style he believes the writers would approve, even if some biblical interpreters might not. One reviewer of the book says, “Phillippe’s work will be seen by some as blithe and brash. That’s the best part. He takes us on a tour of what and where and why the Bible happened, and by peeling off the dusty old trappings he brings to light an enchanted story about people, and a God, we’d like to know better.”
William R. (Bill) Phillippe, upon retirement, chose to move to Princeton primarily so he could worship and engage at Nassau Presbyterian Church. He is a retired Presbyterian minister and author of A Romp through the Bible, and most recently, The Pastor’s Diary. Bill has served a number of churches as pastor, was a Synod Executive for 10 years, and has served as Acting Executive Director of the General Assembly Mission Council.
1 Corinthians In Depth
Sundays, 9:15 a.m.
Maclean House (Garden Entrance)
George Hunsinger leads a verse-by-verse examination of the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians. In this epistle the Corinthian congregation wrestles with doctrinal and ethical issues in conversation with their “founding pastor,” Paul, and Paul offers compelling good news in his understanding of the cross, the resurrection, worship, and life together in Christian community.
George Hunsinger is Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the founder of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture.
