Lenten Sunday Forum

"My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me?" Have you ever felt this way, or struggled to know how to be with someone who did? On Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in the parish hall, come explore the nature of suffering and how our responses shape the way we live.

We'll consider:

  • February 18 The universal nature of suffering, it's transforming power, and helpful images available to us. Led by Dr. Park
  • February 25 Physical suffering. Led by Alison Zavodny, MD, palliative care specialist
  • March 4 Social and emotional suffering. Led by Cheryl Kelley, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist
  • March 3 Spiritual Suffering. Led by Fr. Stuart

Other upcoming Sunday Forum events to put on your calendar:

  • February 25 Cathedral Bookstore in the Greeting Area
  • March 18 Palm Cross Making for all ages  in the parish hall
  • March 25 Easter at Home ideas for all ages in the parish hall

The Forum meets Sunday mornings from 9:30—10:30 AM in the Parish Hall.

The Seekers

The Seekers is an adult Sunday school class in which the members of the class choose a topic, usually a video-based resource, to study for the semester or year. This fall, we have selected Living the Questions. Living the Questions creates an environment in which we can learn about the best of today's theological thought and explore what is next for Christianity. Each Sunday, we will watch a 20 minute video which includes conversations with leading voices of faith, sermons, lecture clips, and digital stories illustrating aspects of an evolving faith and concrete spiritual practices, followed by a discussion facilitated by Chaudron Gille. Our goal is not to find the answers, but to explore the questions together. The structure of the class is such that it is not essential to be present for all the sessions; you can come when you are able, and all are welcome!

Topics include:
An Invitation to Journey, Taking the Bible Seriously, Thinking Theologically, Stories of Creation, Lives of Jesus, A Passion for Christ: Paul, Out into the World, Restoring Relationships, The Prophetic Jesus, Evil, Suffering & the God of Love, The Myth of Redemptive Violence, and Practicing Resurrection

The Seekers will meet Sunday mornings from 9:30—10:30 AM in the Conference Room of the Grace Center. 

Bible Study

The Sunday morning Bible study will meet in room 210 of the preschool/children's wing during the colder months. Join us to read the New Testament in chronological order and explore how the church grew in it's faith. Learn how the world around it helped or hindered it's growth and how it changed based on the times.

In February we will be reading:

  • February 4: Colossians
  • February 11: Gospel of Matthew
  • February 18: Hebrews
  • February 25: Gospel of John

Besides reading the New Testament scriptures, our other primary text is Evolution of the Word by Marcus Borg. We are also utilizing and occasionally, The New Testament video series from The Great Courses.

The Bible Study meets Sunday mornings in room 210 of the preschool wing from 9:30—10:30 AM.
