Faith Development for Adults

Challenge of Paul Theme 3: Paul and Justice
Wednesdays, September 12-26, 6:30-8 pm.
It’s BACK! During Lent, we had an opportunity to participate in “The Challenge of Paul themes 1 and 2.” Via video, John Dominic Crossan shared his lifelong search for the Paul of history to create a new understanding that sheds new light on Paul and why he is more relevant than ever today. We will begin with an episode from “Paul and Luke” then start the “Paul and Justice” series. To learn more about The Challenge of Paul, you can view the 5 minute trailer HERE.
Gratitude: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks
Two offerings: Wednesday evenings, October 3 – November 7, 6:30-8 pm 
                            Thursdays, October 4- November 8, 10 am- noon

Focusing on Diana Butler Bass’ newest book, two discussion sessions will be offered this fall at Memorial UCC.  In the forward to the companion “7-Day Guide to Gratitude,” Bass notes that, “Writing Grateful changed my life in surprising ways, especially in regard to the spiritual practices that have become important to me. I discovered that even in difficult times, gratitude can still frame our days, making us stronger and more able to face personal challenges and work on behalf of the common good.”

Doctor Who and Theology
Third Friday of each month starting at 6 p.m.
There will be no gatherings in the summer but will start up again in October. See you then!

Scripture and Scones
Wednesdays from 8 to 9 a.m.
Every week, a group of folks gather in our library to look at the Scripture texts that will be used the following Sunday. These are often very lively discussions — and the baked goods and coffee aren’t bad either. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
