This class is led each week by our minister Rev. Trina Bose North and meets in the church’s Parlor. They read and discuss books written by leading Christian authors, including Adam Hamilton, Diana Butler Bass, and Philip Newell, among others. We also do special studies for Advent and Lent. Guests will find themselves in a thought-provoking environment where questions are always welcome!
The Journey Sunday School class is reading The Rule of Benedict by Joan Chittister. It offers daily reflections on the rules Saint Benedict created for the first monastery back in the 5th century. Each week, Trina will highlight a daily reading (you don’t have to be reading at home to participate).
Beginning on August 7, 2022, we will be eavesdropping on conversations between Walter Brueggemann and Peter Block in a series called “Porch Sessions.” Join us to discuss their topics and ideas.
Biblical Theologian and Old Testament professor, Walter Brueggemann and community developer and author, Peter Block engage in conversation about the broad narrative of faith and community that has immediate implications in our particular neighborhoods and churches. Besides the interviewers, the prophet Elisha is the other conversation partner who seeks to show us how empire is to be subverted. This series of films demonstrates that the ideas of Brueggemann and Block do not come from untested ideology but the richness of the relationship that they share, as lives lived in community.
