We Have Questions: What Have I Seen That I Can’t Unsee?

. . . . . . . .


Speaker: Marlin Vis is a retired Reformed Church in America minister, who has been a teacher, coach, salesman, pastor, campus minister (GVSU), Mission Person (Israel/Palestine), a beggar, but not a thief. He is Executive Director of Still Processing, and kitchen manager/cook for a program providing a hot meal for folks on the street or with food insufficiencies. He has been married to Sally for a long time. They have two children and four grandchildren.


Musician: Sam Robbins (he/him) is often described as an “old soul singersongwriter.” A Nashville-based musician whose music evokes classic singer songwriters like James Taylor and Jackson Browne, Sam adds a modern, upbeat edge to the storyteller-troubadour persona. He has gained recognition touring as one of the six 2021 winners of the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk competition, and as the first to sing a Jim Croce song on The Voice. Sam released his second album “Bigger Than in Between” to critical acclaim in August 2022.

Moment of Silence


Reading/Teaching: Marlin Vis


“I’ve learned to accept this paradox: a holy book that more often than not doesn’t act very much like you’d expect it, but more like a book written two thousand to three thousand years ago would act. I expect the Bible to reflect fully the ancient settings in which it was written, and therefore not act as a script that can simply be dropped into our lives without a lot of thought and wisdom. The Bible must be thought through, pondered, tried out, assessed, and (if need be) argued with—all of which is an expression of faith, not evidence to the contrary.”

― Peter Enns, The Sin of Certainty: Why God Desires Our Trust More

Than Our “Core Beliefs”


“In the act of tearing something apart, you lose its meaning.”
