In-Depth Studies


All Programs in the Kirk Parlour, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted


Gordon Stewart will lead House of Hope’s Lenten study from his new book Be Still!: Departure from Collective Madness. This study will take place on Wednesday evenings February 21–March 28 at 7 p.m.
“All faith is both personal and public, and all life is intrinsically theological. This study engages participants in the practice of autobiographical and public theology. It invites you to re-examine the faith perspective through which you have learned to see yourself, others, and the world,” explains Stewart.

Lent is a season for reflection and exploration of our Christian faith. This series promises to be a thoughtful and faith-enriching study. Participants are not required to read in advance unless they choose to do so.
“In Be Still!, Stewart masterfully builds a counter-narrative to the madness that is gripping our world. Like the psalmist, Stewart prays thoughtfully through metaphors and religious tradition, meshing theologians and news headlines to lead the reader to a deep, sustained truth, ”according to Frank M. Yamada President of the American Theological Society. Stewart’s voice is familiar to the audiences of Minnesota Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and Westminster’s Town Hall Forum. Books will be available on February 11 for $15 at HOH.
