“It’s what you’re discussing or what a newspaper article is about, the theme of a documentary, or the focus of your term paper. Green energy, the Oscar nominees, what’s on the lunch menu, boxers or briefs — these are all considered topics. If something is a “hot topic,” then everybody is talking about it. (Vocabulary.com)

If you could pick any “Hot” topic to talk about in a safe space, what would it be? Join Pastor Anna on Wednesday evenings during Lent for an opportunity to discuss “hot” topics in a safe space.

All are welcome

ForgivingAsWeveBeenForgiven

Forgiving As We’ve Been Forgiven: Community Practices for Making Peace by L. Gregory Jones & Célestin Musekura

 
Wednesdays, April 4 – May 2
6:00-7:30pm
 
Fireside Room
 
Led by Marty Willard
 
Christians are supposed to forgive others as we’ve been forgiven. But hearing the call to forgive is different from knowing how to practice forgiveness at home and in the world. Forgiveness is about more than the isolated acts and words of individuals. To forgive and be forgiven, we need communal practices and disciplines for a way of life that makes for peace. Greg Jones and Célestin Musekura describe how churches and communities can cultivate the habits that make forgiveness possible on a daily basis. Following the Rwandan genocide, Musekura lost his father and other family members to revenge killings. But then he heard God tell him to forgive the killers. The healing power of forgiveness in his own life inspired him to work for forgiveness and reconciliation across Africa. Jones, author of Embodying Forgiveness, interacts with Musekura’s story to show how people can practice forgiveness not only in dramatic situations like genocide but also in everyday circumstances of marriage, family and congregational life. Together they demonstrate that forgiving and being forgiven are mutually reciprocating practices that lead to transformation and healing.

All are welcome

armor of god

Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer

Room 125 (Chapel)

Led by Kim Losh & Kelley Callaman

The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
