WNL! Class Offerings:
The End of Racism with Rev. Lynn Barger Elliott | Kirk Parlour
Building upon the anti-racism work begun at the 2021 Didier Seminar, this class will explore the history of racism, as well as Christian responses from the past and present. Presentations and discussions will be based on brief articles and video clips from leading thinkers like Jeannine Hill Fletcher and Austin Channing Brown. This class will meet each Wednesday through October 20.
The Celtic Threads: Celtic Spirituality and Influence for Our Time with Rev. Dr. Julia A. Carlson | Room 1
In her book, Sacred Living, Irish Anglican and director of Celtic Spirituality, Grace Clunie, lists six aspects of Celtic spirituality that are both practical and inspirational. They are: our relationship with natural world, hospitality, creating a meaningful lifestyle, living a spirituality that is connected with the human family, acknowledging our life of faith as a spiritual journey, and our relationship with the Eternal, that is death, saints, and angels. This class will meet each Wednesday through October 13.
The Art of the Psalms with Rev. Dr. Mark Barger Elliott | Kirby Lounge
“God’s design in Eden,” writes Makoto Fujimura, was for human beings to “co-create creation.” The Psalms is considered a hymnal and a means to bring forth a song of faith, hope, and love. It also extends an invitation to express our faith through “making,” and artistic expression. No art experience required. Materials provided. Join us for a relaxing class of drawing, study, and faithful expression. This class will meet each Wednesday through October 20.
