Adult Education Session on Sunday mornings

Let’s read & discuss this book by Robin DiAngelo

Sunday mornings December 6, 13 & 20, 11am to 11:45am online via Zoom (meeting ID:  4159243782).

Over the course of the last couple months our Sunday morning adult education class has been focused on race and racism using the book, White Fragility: Why it’s so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism  by Robin DiAngelo   We’ll complete the discussion of this book this month.

The goal is to learn about the concepts the author presents in the book and grow in our Christian understanding of personal and systemic racism and white supremacy. The first half of each class will be a presentation summarizing the material on which the session is based. In the second half we’ll discuss questions that arise out of the material.

Each session we will strive to create a safe space to discuss these difficult issues with mutual love, grace and mercy.

Who is this for? This class is for everyone! Each session, no matter how much you are able to keep up with reading the book, or whether you’ve been to previous sessions, will be relevant and revealing.

Until further notice, classes will be on Zoom (Meeting ID: 4159243782)

Coronavirus Updates
We continue to monitor all state, county, churchwide and synod recommendations regarding reopening churches.  With the recent nationwide surge in COVID cases, and Marin County on the governor’s watch list due to rising cases, we will not be holding in-person worship in 2020. In the  meantime, we are offering our services live online using Zoom.  Services can be linked to from: https://zoom.us/j/4159243782.
 
We invite you to visit us on our Marin Lutheran Facebook page.  Our services as well as devotions are posted there.
 
If we can help anyone, please let us know.  For instance, we can run to the store and buy groceries, or pick up prescriptions and drop them off at your home.  You can email the church, marinlutheran@sbcglobal.net if there is anything we can do for you.

Taize Service

A service of song, silence and contemplation

 

Our Taize worship service is temporarily ON HOLD until we are able to gather together again in our sanctuary. 

 

This beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service follows closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.

The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.

Join us.  All are welcome!
