Power Hour (Adult Forum)

Sundays, 9:30am in the Parish Hall

There have been many days throughout history that have altered time. Join us for this three week series of “Knowing Our Roots” as we journey through time and explore days that changed the world.

Sept 10: For Us

Journey through a “museum” of images representing pivotal moments in recent memory when the world changed, share the stories that surround the images, and explore how these moments in history influence the narrative of our faith.

Sept 17: For the Israelites

Rabbi Zoberman joins us to talk about the day that changed the lives of the Israelites forever: the Exodus. Hear the story of that day and the days and years that followed.

Sept 24: For “Christianity”

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. What does it mean to proclaim Christ crucified? Why did it have to happen? What does the resurrection mean for us? Fr. Bob leads us through a discussion about the days that changed the course of faith and religion.

The Old Testament Scriptures

Sundays, 9:30am in the Library

Jump into the historical context and literary import of the first books of the bible, a foundational document of Western thought and Christian and Jewish faith. Videos presented by Professor Amy-Jill Levine from Vanderbilt University. Discussion facilitated by Mary Poteet and Marti Jones in the library on Sunday mornings 9:30-10:15.

Sundays, 9:30am in Father Bob’s Office

Remember the days of the Under The Hill group? Looking to apply what’s going on in the world today to your faith? Check out this new discussion group using The Wired Word curriculum, designed to create community and stimulate conversation around current news headlines and how they apply to scripture and faith. Facilitated by Debbie Quam, Kelli Hoover, and Matt Jackson.

“Faith in the Public Square” — What voice and role is right for the Church and for individual Christians on the issues of public policy and politics of the day? Fr. Bob will explore the relationship between Church and State. History, Holy Scripture, theology and practice will be developed on our whirlwind tour of Augustine, Roger Williams, the Niebuhrs, and contemporary theologians. Our world needs the Church. Let’s look at ways the Church is faithful to its call.
