WNA Adult Classes
Faith and Life: Adult Catechesis
6:15 – 7:00 p.m. in the third floor conference room
All who wish to join Christ the King Church or would like to know more about this community of faith, are invited to attend a six week class on Wednesday nights through October 14 with Evening Prayer following. We use Luther’s Small Catechism as a guide for our discussion of the Lutheran expression of faith and give an introduction to the congregational and worship life of Christ the King Church.
Building Your Stories at Life Stories Workshop
4:30-5:45 p.m. in the council room
The theme for the fall Life Stories Workshops is “Building Your Story.” The sessions meet through October 7 from 4:30-5:45 p.m. as part of the Wednesday Night Alive! program.
We will consider ways to present life stories, including blogs, videos, audio and video transcriptions and various written formats with participants undertaking their own projects. The emphasis will be on writing personal stories and the best formats to preserve and present them to families and friends. The approach this time will be more creative and with more individual participation in the sessions.
The goal is to explore opportunities we have to present our stories in a changing media world where we encounter more visual and auditory media that has become more accessible.
The Dignity of Difference
6:15 – 7:00 p.m. in the council room
Can a Rabbi help us avoid the clash of civilizations, whose noisy conflicts are in the news every day? Join Kristine Wallace for a Wednesday Night Alive! class to explore The Dignity of Difference by Jonathan Sacks. We’ll consider many questions the book raises. Why has religion emerged in the 21st century as a powerful presence on the world stage? Genesis versus Plato: does Biblical monotheism mean that there is only one gateway to God? What was the particular Hebrew understanding of justice and how can that help us today? What does it mean that we are all made in the image of God? How does the alphabet relate to God’s covenant with the Israelites at Mt. Sinai? How do we forgive, and why is forgiveness so hard? No lectures, no exams. Come prepared for a lively conversation.
