Tell Your Life Story 

Led by Jacqie Wallen

Telling your life story can be an important tool for psychological and spiritual growth and healing. Would you like start writing your life story? Or maybe you have already begun. This class will help you get started or give you a boost by providing writing prompts, time for writing, and opportunities for group sharing. By the end of the class you will have produced a table of contents along with written descriptions of your life’s themes and eight key life events. More writing prompts will be provided at the end of the class to help you continue telling your story.

 

Who Picked That Reading? A Close Look at the Lectionary

Led by members of the Celebration Circle mission group

Every Sunday during worship we read three selected passages from the Bible and expect that the preacher will work with one or more of those readings in the sermon. Why do we do that? Who picked those particular readings? This class answers these questions and many more about the lectionary, the three-year cycle of scripture readings that many churches follow all over the world. Topics that will be covered include the history and purpose of the lectionary, resources for following the lectionary, how to work with difficult texts, and ways of studying and working with these scriptures, such as Lectio Divina and journaling. We hope this class will help you get more out of your worship experience and enrich your prayer and quiet time throughout the week.
