2019 Fall Discovery Hour Classes: A variety of studies in the areas of theology, spiritual disciplines, missions, and more are offered in the Fall. Nursery, children, and youth programming coincide with classes (unless otherwise noted).
Faith and Fiction
Led by Dr. Leslie Kaiura (Room 218)
Leslie will continue the class she started last year. Participants will read short stories by Flannery O’Conner, Ursula K. LeGuin, Shirley Jackson and others and tease out of them religious themes and truths.
How Can you Believe That?
Led by Susan Szczepanski (Room 214)
Susan will lead a discussion of Carol Tarvis and Elliot Aronson’s book, Mistakes Were Made (but not by me). The authors are social psychologists, and their book is about how we choose what we believe. Susan will also include material from James Fowler’s classic book Stages of Faith.
Serve Dinner at the Downtown Rescue Mission
We will be serving dinner on September 15 and 29, October 20, and November 17. Participants will arrive at the rescue mission at 4:45 p.m. in order to serve dinner at 5:00 p.m.
