Have you ever listened to a scripture reading in church on a Sunday morning and found yourself asking “What in the world was that all about?” Sound familiar? If it does, then please consider joining us for “Bible 101,” a weekly Sunday School class for adults that explores each Sunday’s scripture lessons in a lecture/discussion format. We’ll probe the depths of each lesson, examine its background, context, and meaning, and help class members better understand how these lessons relate to our worship experience as well as to the lives we live each day. There are absolutely no prerequisites or qualifications! Whether you’re a bible scholar, struggling student, or complete novice, this class is for all God’s people. Led by the Rev. Stephen DeGweck, Room 232.
Book Class: “Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life”
The class will explore Richard Rohr’s recent book entitled: Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. Rohr, a Franciscan priest and well known author, asserts that we grow spiritually much more by our failures than by our successes. This process continues throughout life, and goes through two stages: First, we build the self (“our container”), and second, we fill that container up. The second half of life isn’t “just getting old,” but the opposite! What feels like “falling down” can be experienced as "falling upward." The second half of life is not loss, but gain. Various class members will present the material from chapters, while sharing their own life experiences, followed by discussion. The first Sunday will be a review of the book, The Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth ; the book Falling Upward will begin the following week. For more information contact Mark LaGory at Email Mark LaGory. Led by Mark LaGory and various parishioners. Meets in the Founders Room
