Listening for God

9:00 a.m. in room 204             

October 2, 9, 23, 30; November 6, 13 (We will not meet October 16)

 

Join Craig & Susan Pynn for six Sunday mornings as we look at and discuss our Christian faith through the lenses of short stories written by different American authors such as Flannery O’Conner, Frederick Buechner, Garrison Keillor, and others.  From the back of the book: “Contemporary American literature may not be the most predictable place to listen for God, but it may well turn out to be the most rewarding.”

Book: Listening for God, Volume 1, Augsburg Fortress, $15.00

Copies of the book will be available in the church office on weekdays or Sunday mornings.  Cash or check, please. (assistance available if needed). If possible, please acquire a book prior to the first class and read the first story for the first class:  “Revelation” by Flannery O’Connor. All are welcome in the class, but you will get the most out of it and be able to fully participate if you have read the story in advance.  Please email with any questions: Craig - craigpynn@mac.com    OR    Susan - sdpynn@gmail.com
                        
 

The mission of the Adult Faith Formation is to foster lifelong learning about God, self, and all of creation, empowering Christians to effectively proclaim and serve Christ… locally and throughout the world.  It is the vision of AFF to:

  • Present information that will touch the head, heart, and actions of a diverse community of adult learners, in ways relevant to life today.
     

  • Inform, form and transform adults as they grow in their relationship with God and each other, living as examples of Jesus Christ.
     

  • Develop a deeper understanding of the Bible as we explore intellectually and spiritually challenging faith issues.
