In this series, we will explore the writings and sayings of important historical figures in the first few centuries of Christian history and learn how their work has influenced faith over the past two thousand years. Several guest speakers who specialize in the study of the early church will share their research, expertise, and insights into some of the earliest followers of Jesus and how they lived their lives because of their faith. We will also explore what their work and devotion can teach us in the twenty first century.
