CONTEMPLATIVE GROUP will meet this Wednesday, September 19 at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room. Following our time for contemplation we will continue with Fr. Richard Rohr’s teaching on “Stages of Consciousness”.
We will begin a new series on Thursday, September 20. We meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. Our series this time is called Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi. New Testament scholar, Amy-Jill Levine will analyze and illuminate Jesus’ parables, helping us to understand how the people in Jesus’ time would have understood these parables. This will enable us to understand the meaning they hold for us today – 2000 years later! Just come and join us.
SPECIAL ONE-TIME BIBLE STUDY featuring controversial Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong on his book “The Sins of Scripture”. Bishop Spong will lead us through a summary of the history of Christianity to understand how scripture has been abused in order to foster hatred, prevent the acceptance of modern science and ultimately to inhibit the bringing about of God’s Kingdom. We will meet in the Conference Room on Thursday, September 6, 9:30-11 a.m. To view video go to: Special One-Time Bible Study
Adult Forum will meet on Sunday, September 2, at 11:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. This month we conclude our study of “Painting the Stars: Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith”. The focus presentation will be “An Evolving Spirituality: Mysticism”. Who are the mystics? Are there any walking among us today? Are WE called to be mystics? All are welcome to join in our discussion!
