“Class on Joy”
This class is an exploration of insights and practices for nurturing happiness and peace in as stressful world, inspired by Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. It evolves from “The Book of Joy”, which is an account of a week of conversations between these two spiritual giants about how they have maintained joy through some very difficult times. There are copies of the book available if you want to follow along (its an enjoyable read from the NY Times best seller list); but you can benefit from the class without feeling you have to do the reading.

“Scripture into Art”
We’ll be using narrative lectionary scriptures to guide our worship this fall, and we’ll use the same scriptures for this class – just two weeks ahead! Each week, we’ll read the scriptures together, and then each participant will reflect on those scriptures and create something during the week (photography, painting, poetry, litany, sculpture, whatever!). We’ll share those creations with each other the next Sunday, and hopefully find a way to tie them in with our weekly worship services. By creating during the week – we’ll be preparing our hearts and minds for worship. [organized by Karin Shank]
