Holy Troublemakers: an open circle discussion

Bible Study
Every Sunday • 717
Led by participants
Drop in for reading, commentary and discussion of a chapter of scripture to help discern the meaning, value and application of the reading for our everyday thinking and action. Everyone welcome!  Every Sunday.

Spiritual Yoga
12 sessions: Sept. 8 – Nov. 24 • Fellowship Hall
Led by Hope Cook and Katie Calkin
Drop in for yoga with scripture and poems.  Bring a water bottle, towel to cushion knees, and a yoga mat (we’ll have a couple extra).  Feel free to bring blocks, strap, or other props. Wear stretchy pants for yoga and church, or bring a change of clothes.  Beginners welcome!  Physical postures are optional — you are invited to join us and sit in silent meditation.

Listening for God: Godly Play for Adults
6 sessions: Sept. 29 – Nov. 3 • 717
Led by Meg Hines and Sarah Sumners
Using Godly Play as a structure, this meditation group will provide space for adults to give themselves liberty to think and to play, to slow down, to wonder and draw one’s own conclusions from the sacred story, to share original artwork, to participate in the mysterious work of God, and to be close to God in the beauty of it all.
