This year’s Lenten adult education class is rather large. In addition, we have a home for each of the six sessions. The nice part is that both the content of the class as well as its constituency of participants and host families provide great opportunity for long-term church members and newer folks to get to know each other.
Truly, this class is an exercise in inclusive ministry! And of course, as you read this, you can still join either for a single session or for the remainder. We meet Friday nights at 8:00 p.m.
Each session’s subject provides another window to the world. We do not want to be a church with siege mentality, where the most prevalent question would be how to keep our faith pure while the world goes berserk. Instead, the world is God’;s creation, and we are some of its stewards.
Consequently, our sessions deal with diverse subjects. How do we respond to evil in the world? Where is our faith when we discuss neurological science and the theory of evolution? What does our faith say regarding the reality of disabilities? How do Christians deal with the phenomenon of the day-and-night society that knows no Sabbath? What happens when homelessness challenges our faith?
Does any of this wet your appetite? Then come and see us Fridays during Lent!
