Classes

Somehow: Thoughts on Love

Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. in Room 155 (June 18 – July 9)
with Barbara Jo Burns and Marilyn Moore

In her book Somehow: Thoughts on Love, Anne Lamott asserts that “One day at a time, and somehow one hour at a time, love will be enough to see us through, get us back on our feet and dust us off. Love gives us a shot at being the person we were born to be.” Join us for a discussion of Lamott’s newest book.  Her words are, as always, honest, insightful, funny, compassionate, and wise.  In our conversation, we’ll add to our understanding of love, in all its complexity and simplicity.  

James: Faith and Works

Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom (June 6 – July 18)
with Dave Moore

Beginning this in June, join Dr. Dave Moore for a new Bible Study on the small but mighty Book of James, a New Testament text that encapsulates the vitalness of living Christian lives made up of deeds matching our faith. For James – as well as for our many Methodist forerunners, both worldwide and here at Saint Paul – aiding those in need is essential to a life of faith. All are welcome to join in this summer study and share in James’ absolute conviction of loving one’s neighbor!

Miracles and Mysteries

Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in Room 155 (April 24 – May 15)
with Cristina Linder

This Easter season, join Cristina Linder as she leads a class on two of the greatest mysteries of our time: the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico, and the Shroud of Turin in Italy. Together, we’ll explore the history, the mystery, and the continuing impact each of these phenomena have to their surrounding cultures and worldwide faiths.

Into the World: The Acts of the Apostles

Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom (January 18 – May 16)
with Dr. Dave Moore

Dr. Dave Moore leads this new Kerygma Bible study exploring the Acts of the Apostles. The Book of Acts picks up where the Gospel of Luke leaves off, and it passes down to us the transformative events and personalities of the earliest church. All are welcome to take part and catch the wind that animated the first Jesus followers, while reflecting on its continuing empowerment of the Church today.
