this week's adult education offerings

  • Seekers Class will explore creativity and how we use it to grow spiritually. Questions lead to answer that lead to questions. Life is full of questions for the seeking. Art is a line of communication not just for answer - for the triumphant end - but for the beauty found. As we grow in grace, we continue to be liberated to tell the complete story of transition from conditional to unconditional love. Join us as we discuss the role of art in this liberation process.
  • Challenges and Choices last week, Dan Snell lead us in an excellent discussion about racism. Dan will also be our leader this coming Sunday when he will report on the state of public schools and their future. Dan says, "Come with questions, though I may have only vague answers." Newcomers are always welcome!
  • Listening for God class is focusing on a variety of podcasts. In preparation for this Sunday, please listen to the Happiness Lab podcast, "Dump Your Inner Drill Sergeant," from January 3. Visitors are welcome.
  • Roots and Wings class is doing a new series from Rachel Held Evans, titled A New Family. Session 4 is called, "The God Who Sees You." We begin each class with a video and then discuss it, using a variety of approaches. We would love for you to join us for refreshing conversation.
