Holy Envy, Finding God in the Faith in Others, by Barbara Brown Taylor, is finally starting this Sunday, January 5th at 9:30am in the Fireside Room! This book describes what the author learns over the years of teaching Religion 101 at a small Christian College in Georgia.  Through discussions, lectures, field trips and self reflections, the students and even the teacher gain insight into what draws them to their own faith traditions and respect for those who find faith in different places.

Even if you haven’t read the book, or want to read as we go through the month, you will still be able to actively participate.  We are asking folks to get their own book, rather than selling them at church. Each class stands alone, so come to the ones of interest or that work into your schedule!

 

January 5th (A great New Years resolution is to attend Adult Ed!). Opening discussion of faith formation, what do we know about other faith practices and why this conversation is important!
