Lenten Academy – postponed until further notice

Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 health emergency, all classes are postponed until further notice.  Please check back for further updates.

Lent is a great time for midweek study opportunities! We’re offering three weekly classes—one on “The Four Vision Quests of Jesus” and two “earth-honoring” book studies. Books for purchase and signup sheets in the Community Room. (March 3 – April 3)

The Four Vision Quests of Jesus by Steven Charleston
(Talitha Arnold – Wednesdays at 5:15 pm)

Choctaw Elder and Christian Bishop Charleston explores Jesus’ experience in the wilderness and the Garden of Gethsemane through a Native American lens. Jesus’ “quests” underscore our need a communal identity and the pursuit of freedom through discipline and concern for justice, compassion, and human dignity.
