Ever wondered how the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) started? Ever wonder why “Disciples of Christ” is always in parentheses? Curious about the Church Jesus came to establish and how it evolved after his death? Ever wondered what the Reformation or the Restoration were all about? Then we have a class for you!
Teacher: Lisa Wynn
Class Title: Emmanuel, God-With-Us
Subtitle: Learning to pray in the way of Ignatius
Description: Come join us for four Sundays during Advent when we will explore a way of prayer known as “Ignatian Contemplation” using Advent scriptures to help us experience God’s presence and prepare us for Christmas, the arrival of God among us … Emmanuel. After the class (in January – March), participants will be challenged to continue this prayer practice through a three-month virtual sharing group that will go through the entire New Testament in chronological order.
Dates: 12/2, 12/9, 12/16, 12/23
Boka Keene means study of the Bible. We are a Bible study group whose members learn from one another through our discussion of the bible as we study it. Everyone is open about sharing their faith as God and the Holy Spirit speaks to each of us. Our only resources are the Bible and commentaries. Everyone is welcome. All we ask of our class members is that they have a desire to learn more about the Bible, and enjoy good friendships with each other.
