A Theology of Learning together

There are many ways we learn together as a community.

One of those ways is through our dialogues with the biblical text. We do this not simply on Sunday mornings but throughout the entire week. That is why these weekly preparation texts and queries are posted on the homepage of this website. It’s an invitation to reflect on what the Holy Spirit may be saying through these stories to us and it also gives us a chance to prepare collectively for our Sunday morning meeting for worship.

When we gather for worship on Sunday morning we learn together by having opportunities to speak our own experiences about the texts and God’s movement within us before our meeting for worship.

The goal for us is not to have one “expert” tell us what to think, but rather draw on the collective wisdom of all in our midst.

As a worshipping community we open ourselves to Jesus who is our present teacher.

The “messages” are then set within this context.

They are meant to raise questions, drive us to further reflection, and enable us to better participate in the work of Christ in the world.

They are not meant to offer the “answer” that closes down all other possible interpretations and implications these texts may offer us.

We welcome you into this process of learning, listening and worship with us.

    Remember the Sunday morning class starts at 9:30 with the first few minutes spent with concerns of the week.
    I am interested in Quakerism 101 classes. I look forward to more information.

    Pretty! This was a really wonderful article. Thanks for
    supplying these details.

  6. Thee neighborhood agent has ties to the community
    and is easily accessible. The total cost of the
    premiums, the quality and level of coverage offered, and other services such as car rental and towing which are offered are alll items that should be thoroughly examined.
    Raising all your deductibles is also another positive
    way of getting yourself good car insurance since you will significantly lessen most of your premiums.

    The characters of the MGS series can be delivered to represent the many results of war on someone’s mental health, whether or not they are soldiers, commanders, or bystanders.

    UN’s Undersecretary-Genberal for Humanitarian Affairs and Emerrgency Relief Cooddinator Jan Egeland criticized
    Hezbollah for its alleged use of Lebanese civilians
    as “human shields”, stating: onsistently, through the Hezbollah heartland, my
    message was that Hezbollah must stfop this cowardly blendingamong females and children.
    Understand until this is just a part of your total personality which should be uncerstood
    and accepted.
