Adult Education - Sundays @ 10:45am

THE DIFFICULT WORDS of JESUS  

Sundays, Sept 12 & 19, Oct 10, 17 & 24, Nov 14 at 10:45am in person or via ZOOM (ID: 4159243782)

 

We begin this fall with a Bible Study of some of Jesus’ most challenging teachings. Using a book by Amy-Jill Levine, The Difficult Words of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to His Most Perplexing Teachings, (you can find the book at your local Book Store or on Amazon—although it’s not necessary to have a copy to get something out of the class), plus a 10– 12-minute video by Professor Levine for each session, we will explore the difficult passages.  Amy-Jill Levine will show how these teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the Gospel of love and reconciliation.

Amy-Jill Levine is the University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies and the Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences.  An internationally renowned scholar and teacher, she is the author of numerous books including Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week and Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi.

These classes will be held in person in the Parish Hall, and on Zoom from 10:45 to 11:30 am.

Serve & Share

JOIN US on Thursday, Sept 16th @ 10:00am – Conference Room

 

We have LOADS of quilt tying to do to catch up with all the quilts that were sewn during the past 10 COVID months. This is in preparation for the LWR Ingathering in October when they are sent on their way to the LWR warehouses for shipment overseas. It’s so nice to get together in person!

 No experience is necessary & newcomers are always welcome so come join the fun!

Meal Bags for the Hungry

Pick them up in the church narthex

 

Please help yourself to the meal bags prepared by the SOCIAL ACTION team and placed in the narthex. They are for dispensing to anyone you come across who is hungry or in need. (FYI), if you keep them in the car, be sure to store in the front seat for easy access and avoid frantic searches while driving.  Many thanks for helping to distribute these.

Taize Service - On HOLD for now.

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!
