Adult Study Groups

EVENING ADULT ENRICHMENT GROUP AND AFTERNOON ADULT ENRICHMENT GROUP: CAN WE DIALOGUE ABOUT CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES?  IS MUCH GAINED BY JUST TALKING TO THOSE WHO AGREE WITH US?  CAN THE CHURCH SET A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WHAT HEALTHY DIALOGUE LOOKS LIKE?  Beginning in October we are going to try as we begin a dialogue on the Refugee Crisis.  These sessions will be as much about how we dialogue as the topic itself.  As part of this study everyone will be asked to be open to some well-researched, trustworthy information on the topic.  We will work on learning how to listen, ask good questions, and how to empathize with another even if we disagree.  We will also challenge ourselves by exploring some of our own prejudices that contribute to the problem. The afternoon group meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month at 2:00 PM in the church lounge.  Next meeting: 1/16/20, 2/6/20, and 2/20/20.  The evening group meets on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 7:00 PM in Room #22 of the Christian Education Building (the room will be open at 6:30 PM for those who would like to bring and eat their dinner beforehand).  Next meetings: 1/7/20, 1/21/20, 2/4/20, and 2/18/10.
