Book Study – Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading The Fight for Incarcerated Women

Led by The Rev. Jenny Brown

Join this eight-week book study, which will use the genre of memoir and Susan Burton’s particular story in order to look deeper into ourselves and the families/systems that shape us. We will read this book together and simultaneously keep a prayer journal of reflections guided by Jenny. The format will be (via zoom) – 20 minute lecture, 15 minutes of large group reflection upon the assigned chapters, 30 minutes of small group and journal sharing, and 10 minutes of shaping the reading and journaling for the upcoming class. This group will begin meeting Oct. 11, from noon until 1:15 p.m. The class will run through Dec. 13 (excluding Nov. 29). To register, please contact The Rev. Jenny Brown. This class will be limited to 50 participants.

Bible Works: Tools for Living

Led by The Rev. Jim Adams

Bible Works – Tools for Living

Bible Works will take place online this fall beginning Tuesday, Sept. 22. This class, led by The Rev. Jim Adams, will include weekly resources and a video lecture that will be sent via email each week on Tuesday.

The Rev. Jim Adams will explore Saint Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. Known as one of the most optimistic and encouraging of Paul’s epistles, it was written around 61AD, ironically, from a prison cell. Paul’s faith was deepened during this trying time and his determination to share the Gospel only increased because of his own hardship. He shares with the Christians at Philippi a faith that is robust and joyful, in soaring language that is both realistic and deeply theological.

Spring 2020: The Gospel of Matthew
