Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday series
 
We meet weekly at 10:00 AM and are reading brief reflections from Every Thing is Sacred, a companion book to Richard Rohr’s The Universal Christ. 
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 Every Thing is Sacred or The Universal Christ but having access to one or both will be helpful, both to read the very brief reflections before class and to use the Reflective Exercises on your own and in community!
Book(s) or not, please pop in for our Zoom discussion! You can get a link for the Zoom meeting or get more info by emailing Diane Koon at diane.koon@comcast.net
