Resources for Christians and seekers
From the biblical tales of Adam and Eve, to the first apostles of the early church, and even in our modern-day local congregations, Christians seek opportunities to build strong communities.  And, much like the characters in the hit show Lost, we must often choose between our own personal needs and a commitment to the common good.

Lost is one of the most popular television shows of recent memory; a show in which physical drama--Will they survive?--and spiritual drama--Will they be redeemed?--go hand in hand. From the first episode, when a jet airliner flying from Australia to Los Angeles crashes on a desert island, through the ensuing seasons where the characters work with and against one another to survive, Lost has asked difficult questions that we all ask ourselves as humans, and as Christians.

Lost can prompt powerful discussions about good and evil, conflict and violence, faith, free will, and the importance--and difficulty--of doing the right thing. In this study we'll introduce the characters and concerns of the series, watch scenes from the show, and discuss questions closely related to them. In the process, we'll explore theological and ethical questions as well as social and political ones: What should be done to create a just and secure society? What is the nature of evil? What is the relationship between faith and free will? In what ways can human beings be lost? And can we ever be irretrievably lost?
