Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday series
We have been meeting weekly at 10:00 and just completed an excellent series from the Episcopal church on Civil Discourse. 

This week, February 21, is a transitional week to look at some of the themes of Richard Rohr’s The Universal Christ to prepare to read the companion book, Every Thing is Sacred, for a multi-week study. 

Please consider joining us for this inspiring look at incarnational Christianity as framed by Franciscan Father Richard and Patrick Boland! You will be able to join the discussion without purchasing the book but having access to at least Every Thing is Sacred will be helpful, both to read the very brief chapters before class and to use the Reflective Exercises on your own and in community!

Both books are available locally and online:
The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr
Every Thing is Sacred by Richard Rohr and Patrick Boland

 
Please consider joining us!—you can get a link for the Zoom meeting or get more info by emailing Diane Koon at diane.koon@comcast.net
