Do you consider yourself spiritual, but not religious?
Do you take the bible seriously, but not literally?
Do you view Christian faith as a path to God, but not the only path?
Do you seek faith in your own personal experience?
Do you seek to integrate science and other forms of contemporary knowledge into your faith, and trust the intellectual progress serves faith?
If so, we encourage you to join us in our learning opportunities:
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of learning formats, including the following:
Movie nights: at our monthly movie nights, we review contemporary and classic films with spiritual themes. These have included: Jesus Christ Superstar, An Inconvenient truth, Micheal Moore’s film “Sicko”, and “What the Bleep do we Know?” If you have a movie in mind, please contact Pastor Laurie!
Blessing of the Animals: to honor all God’s creatures great and small. Animals are important family members and they tend to bring people and communities together. this event is open to the public and children are especially welcome
1. Book clubs: monthly discussions of works of fiction and non fiction. Meets in the afternoon at homes of the participants. Books include, “Ekhardt Tolle’s” “The Power of Now”, Marcus Borg’s “The Heart of Christianity”.
Using Marcus Borg’s book The Heart of Christianity and a
companion study guide and DVD, we will explore the basics of
the Christian faith and its meaning and inspiration for our lives
today. Please see sign up lists in the Fireside Room.
2. Living the Questions – a 12 week DVD and web based small group program of Christianity’s invitation, initiation, and spiritual formation, featuring today’s leading theological thinkers. Daytime and evening groups.
