GATHERING TIME

Adult SS

Sundays @ 9:30am in the Upper Room Facilitated by Meg Dowling

The overarching theme is Reconciliation, based on 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. In those verses we are drawn to the Biblical mandate and invitation to be reconciled to God, others, creation, and ourselves. We hope to explore this theme in relation to contemporary issues and subjects, including Biblical exploration, in ways that will help us more fully live into the ministry of reconciliation that we have been given.

October 22nd – November 26th: the theme will be Reconciling with Ourselves. These sessions will include conversations around self care, being in touch with our soul, healing from trauma, and dealing with grief and loss.

Sessions include:

  • November 19: "Grief and Loss," with special guest Professor Michael DeVries of NPU Michael DeVries is a Professor of Psychology at North Park University, where he teaches courses in the new Masters of Counseling Program. He will be leading a discussion on the ways that grief and loss impact our spiritual lives.
  • November 26: "Embodied Faith: Believing in our Bodies," led by Meg Dowling. This session will focus on the ways that we use our body to experience our faith, acknowledging that we are not simply cognitive or intellectual beings, but also embodied ones.
