Fall 2021/Spring 2022

This year the class will, in a sense, be a return to the basics. Each class will address themes that arise in the lectionary readings scheduled to be read in church on that Sunday. Specifically, there will be five separate series. As we conclude Ordinary Time in the fall, the class will open with a series on the Gospel of Mark, focused on the political nature of the gospel. For Advent, the class will study the Gospel of Thomas to prepare us for the wonders of Christmas. The series scheduled for the seasons of Christmas and Epiphany will focus on the feast day liturgies that we typically celebrate during these seasons. The Lenten series will address the spirituality of death and dying with a focus on how hope helps us make sense of suffering. Finally, the Easter series will focus on the psychological dimensions of faith and how they might help us to live into the idea of resurrection now. It’s going to be fun and will help you use your faith to find meaning in your daily life. This class meets in Child Hall and is available online. For more information, contact Canon George Maxwell,
