Adult Class

Sundays, 9:00AM

In the Chapel and on Zoom

Join us as we explore the film series “Marching from Pain to Possibility” on May 1, 8, 22, and 29.  Click here to watch the series trailer.

These films are invitations to enter into a journey of making sense of our deepest desires that comes from pain and woundedness. The discussion that follows each film offers ways to reflect and find that place of pain, and at the same time, that place of wholeness and healing. Practices will be suggested as invitations to examine both our wounds and the wounds of others and see how we might bring peace and healing. The desert is a place void of easy fixes, but it can also be where we find who we truly are.

On May 15, the 9:00 class will feature discussion of mental health during the pandemic.

Why were the Hebrew Scriptures written?  Who compiled them? What do the repeating design patterns teach us about God and ourselves?

We are continuing to work through a Bible Project course entitled “Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures.”  Come when you can.  Discussion is based on a video presentation, so no prior knowledge is expected.
