St. Thomas Episcopal Church, located at 116 S. Columbia Ave. in Campbellsville, will host two Lenten programs of interest to the general public, the first of which is tonight at 7.

The Rev. Karl Lusk, pastor, will lead a discussion of the "Four Great Heresies of the Church."

These occurred in the formative years of Christianity and were attempts to define various traditions, scriptural accounts and opinions into church doctrine. These led to disagreements, schisms and eventually councils of church leaders to find consensus.

The discussion will compare the reasons why church leaders rejected the "heresies" and how the church today attempts to deal with similar issues of disagreements about doctrine and dogma.

On Wednesday, April 1, a practicing Buddhist, a follower of Islam and a Christian scholar will discuss how the thought and philosophy of each of these world religions have influenced the thought and practice of each other.

Both programs begin at 6 p.m. with a light supper. The program follows at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
