Unlearning God: How Unbelieving Helped Me Believe

Unlearning God: How Unbelieving Helped Me Believe

National bestselling author, speaker Philip Gulley returns to First-Plymouth

Thursday, November 15
7:00pm in the Sanctuary

With his trademark humor and gentle wisdom, author, minister, and America’s favorite Quaker storyteller, Philip Gulley, will explore the terrain of faith and doubt as shaped by family, church, and young love. 

Raised by a Catholic mother and a Baptist father, across the street from a family of Jehovah's Witnesses -- all three camps convinced Gulley that the other two are doomed.  To everyone's surprise, Philip grew up to be a Quaker pastor.

This lecture is for anyone whose faith has been challenged by the world around them. Gulley will explain how to let go of, or unlearn these burdensome obstacles in their faith so that they can forge a more authentic relationship with God.

Gulley, co-pastor of Fairfield Friends Meeting in Camby, Indiana, is the author of 22 books including the Harmony fiction series, the Porch Talk series, If Grace is True: Why God Will Save Every Person andThe Evolution of Faith. His books will be available for purchase during a book signing following the evening session. 

The event is free to the public. Free-will donations (suggested $10) will be accepted at the doors.


"The great truth is this -- whether we are Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, or Jewish; whether we believe with all our hearts or don't believe at all, we are members, all of us, of the true community of God." -- Philip Gulley
