The Universal Christ

Led by Kolya Braun-Greiner & Glenn Clark

Kolya Braun-Greiner and Glenn Clark invite you to join them in exploring Richard Rohr’s book The Universal Christ. Father Rohr introduces a concept of “Christ” as a worldview in which matter and Spirit are not separate—where Christ is a name for the transcendent within everything in the universe. Rohr says that “the proof that you are a Christian is that you can see Christ everywhere else.” The class will explore key chapters and themes through small and large group discussions seeking to cultivate an experiential awareness of the Christ Mystery that “rewires you on the physical, neurological, and cellular levels.” All class members should obtain the book prior to the start of the class.

 

Jeremiah: A Prophet for the 21st Century?

Led by David Lloyd & Deborah Sokolove

The book of Jeremiah can be seen as a traumatic response to the political events and destruction of Judea in the 6th century BCE, and a way forward that provided hope. Join Deborah and David as they explore Jeremiah’s relevance for us as we cope with traumatic events in our lifetimes. The class will have short reading and writing assignments, and partially meets a Hebrew Scriptures requirement for becoming a Steward in Seekers Church.
