Adult Education

Our life of learning more of God and from each other continues on Sunday mornings during the Christian Education hour.

Class being offered during the Winter

Immigration/Sanctuary coordinated by Joe Mas in the library. This class is a series of talks given by speakers familiar with the issues.  Topics to be discussed include history of immigration and related law; the process of getting asylum, visas, and residency; issues around amnesty, deportation, and sanctuary; and more. 

The Power of Radical Kinship book discussion led by Kate Hauk in rm 22. Father Greg Boyle’s second book, Barking to the Choir, details stories of unconditional love in difficult times working with ex-cons and gang members in Los Angeles.  The stories demonstrate the role of faith, compassion, mutuality and the enduring power of kinship in transforming the lives and neighborhoods of Los Angeles.  Books will be available to purchase or read along in class.

A Hunger for Healing, coordinated by Steve Rolfe in rm 24. This class returns as our longest-running class, presenting the Twelve-Step method as a spiritual tool that we all can use. It will use J. Keith Miller’s book, A Hunger for Healing: The Twelve Steps as a Classic Model for Christian Spiritual Growth. This book serves as an introduction to the Twelve Steps. The Steps are presented as spiritual tools for living, growing, and healing that can be used by anyone. The class goes through the Steps one at a time by reading the book (in class), viewing an accompanying series of video interviews, along with sharing and discussion. Previous experience with the 12 Steps IS NOT required.
