Our Sunday Forums gather in the Living Room from 11:30 – 12:30 on scheduled Sundays throughout the program year.

Forums to Deepen Spirituality during Lent

During the month of February, we celebrate Mardi Gras, turn toward God on Ash Wednesday, then move into the desert to journey with Jesus. Our Sunday forum series will focus upon spiritual practices and sacred story enhancing our Lenten spiritual adventure. Please join us in the Living Room, 11:30AM – 12:30PM for these two upcoming formation series.

SPIRITUAL PRACTICES with Elizabeth Clemmitt: As Lent approaches, our minds turn toward spiritual practices we might want to explore. Please join Elizabeth Clemmitt, our Associate for Spiritual Wellness, as she presents three forums on some spiritual practices she enjoys. The first week will be on Anglican prayer beads, also known as the Protestant rosary; the second will be on using the Labyrinth as a spiritual tool; and the third will be on two popular methods of Christian meditation: Centering Prayer and the Maranatha Mantra from the World Community for Christian Meditation. Gathering 2/9, 2/23, 3/8.

GOD’S STORY AND OURS with The Rev. Kevin M. Goodman: Have you always wanted to write for television? Do conflicted characters, dancing bones and exploding planets arouse your curiosity? Do you want to deepen your spirituality and create a new liturgy that is fun and spirit filled for children, adults and seniors? If the answer is “yes” to at least one of these, join our writing and research team! We need people of ALL AGES and ALL STRIPES to help tell the story of a lifetime. This unique series of multigenerational workshops will prepare us for Holy Week, particularly for the Easter Vigil – a service of darkness, light, music and story. AND WE NEED EVERYBODY’S HELP AND PARTICIPATION. During these Sunday Forums, we together will learn, discover and create the most wonderful and unique worship service of the year. If you can talk, color, think, laugh or breathe, this is your chance to work with others, creating something beautiful and unique through fun, laughter, exploration and teamwork. Please give this opportunity a priority if your life allows it. Gathering 2/16, 3/1, 3/15, 3/22, and 3/29.
