Adult Education

Sunday Adult Forum
9:00-10:00 a.m. in the Covenant Room
We do offer a variety of learning opportunities in conjunction with our Sunday School for people of all ages. Sessions are held from 9:00-10:00 am. Our adult education offerings are planned by a team of lay members and clergy, sessions are also taught by lay and clergy.

Going, Going, Gone--Planning a Good End of Life: You’re never too young to start thinking for yourself, and about those you love."
Resources Available
This series encourages courageous conversations with our loved ones and families to ensure that we have the end of life that we chose. We wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to learn about this valuable topic, even if they couldn't make it to 9 am Sunday Adult Ed, so we created this Google Doc (click here) full of links and resources. There are videos and radio broadcasts, newspaper articles and healthcare sites. Hopefully all the sources will either help you learn if you aren't able to join us, or deep-en your knowledge if you can.

Faith, Sexism, and Justice
There is one opportunity remaining for the deeply reflective conversations about Faith, Sexism & Justice. Why do words and images for God matter? How do we challenge the misuse of Scripture against women and girls? These conversations have been part of a process for an upcoming ELCA social statement on Women & Justice. The comment period ends August 31. If you couldn’t be part of our conversation sessions but still want to engage the conversation, please talk to Pastor Nick. Visit http://elca.org/womenandjustice for more information.

The Screwtape Letters
Mondays at 7:00pm
Join us for a discussion of a C.S. Lewis classic, The Screwtape Letters. This book is a collection of letters from a senior demon (Screwtape) to an apprentice demon (his nephew, Wormwood). The letters are packed with advice on how this demon-in-training can best influence his "patient" – guiding him away from "the Enemy" and toward "Our Father Below." Smart, imaginative, and humorous, the book provides a light and entertaining romp through many very deep topics. This discussion group will meet on Monday evenings at 7:00pm (for about an hour). We will read and discuss two or three letters in each session until we have completed the book. Don't have time to prepare? Come anyway! Contacts: Martha Frey and Don Falkos


Faith in Action for Racial Equity (FARE)
This faithful group is moving more deeply into their work for racial justice, from the what of racial inequity to the “what now” of racial justice work. The more one engages at a personal level, the more the journey requires from us. Yet, it is exactly this engagement that signals a movement from being merely an observer or information-gatherer to becoming an active participant in the anti-racism movement.

Even if you’re not in the FARE group, you might have interest in reading samples of spiritual autobiographies through the les of race that can be found in the “White Privilege: Let’s Talk” curriculum available free download at http://privilege.uccpages.org/.
