Tuesdays With Marc - AM
Join Pastor Marc's group of early risers on Tuesdays at 7:30 am (in person or online) for an exploration of The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu and Douglas Abrams. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's 80th birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? This book captures their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye. The book study runs through December 19. Feel free to dip in and out as your schedule allows.
Tuesdays With Marc - PM
Join Pastor Marc on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm for an online exploration of Brian McLaren's Faith After Doubt: Why Your Beliefs Stopped Working and What to Do About It. Learn about a model of faith development (for yourself and your family) in which questions and doubts aren't the enemy of faith, but rather a portal to a more mature and fruitful type of faith. The book study runs through December 19. Feel free to dip in and out as your schedule allows.
The Women of Advent Bible Study
The Bible's "Christmas" stories feature several fascinating and important female characters: Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist; Anna, daughter of Phanuel; and of course, Mary, the mother of Jesus. We'll look closely at the narratives involving these characters with special attention on the role of Mary in the history of Christian spirituality. Join us on Zoom December 12 and 19 at 7:00 pm.
