Rethinking Call in a Changing World

Led by Marjory Bankson

  • Does God have a “good work” for me now? At this time in my life?
  • Is there a new way for us to listen and respond together?

Explore the concept of call as a spiritual journey, unfolding throughout our lives. This six-week course will include individual and group exercises, along with discernment of gifts and ministries in the ordinary structures of our lives — at home, at work, and in the hurting world around us. Come ready to listen, learn, participate, and pray together. Marjory’s books Call to the Soul and Creative Aging will be the primary texts for this class.

 

The Good News of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel

Led by David Lloyd

Luke believed that his account of Jesus’ life, passion, and resurrection was good news to Jews and Gentiles in the Roman Empire. Is Luke’s account good news to us? In our study we’ll explore a number of his parables that may help us answer such questions as: What is the kingdom of God like? What does the commitment of one’s life to bringing about God’s kingdom involve? and Why should we make that commitment? Each week’s homework will include reading excerpts from the Gospel, a few questions for reflection and journaling, and a question or two for a written response and discussion in class.
