Adult Spiritual Formation, July/August 2020

We are using online platforms for Adult Spiritual Formation gatherings during social-distancing.  

Thursday Voices

Thursdays 12:00-1:00pm via Google Meet:
During the summer season, the group will discuss articles from “The Christian Century.” Contact Mary Cowden to receive the articles.

Sunday Seminar & Living in the Word

Sundays July 12-August 16, 9:00-9:50am via Google Meet:

Please join us for a DVD series with popular author and speaker, Amy-Jill Levine, based on her 2015 book Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi. The sessions will help us “re-read Jesus’ provocative parables” as Levine “takes us back in time and explains how original audiences understood Jesus’ parables.”

Amy-Jill Levine is a university professor of New Testament and Jewish studies and Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School.  She is the author of numerous books including Misunderstood Jews: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus.

As we strive as a faith community to address our own biases, this series provides a timely opportunity to listen to the experiences of another historically marginalized and stigmatized people.

The series includes:

  • Lost Sheep, Lost Coin, Lost Son
  • The Good Samaritan
  • The Pearl of Great Price
  • The Mustard Seed
  • The Laborers in the Vineyard
  • The Widow and the Judge
