This four-week study will meet from 6:45 to 8 p.m. Mondays beginning June 6 in Room 17/18. It is intended to be casual and relaxing – no book required. Led by Marcia Rostad.
Come out of the June heat at the end of the day and join the Monday evening study called “Looking for God in Messy Places – A Book About Hope” by Jake Owensby. This is a study about hope – how to find it, how to practice it, how to grow in it, and how it helps manage everyday stressors. Because when we look for God in the middle of the mess, we find hope.
It can seem that each day brings new problems that need to be addressed or resolved or even punted into the future because it can be too much to handle at the time. The children are out of school and home for the summer, but finding child care has been difficult. Inflation has been exceptionally trying on the household budget. Will COVID cases escalate in number and severity? These are a few of the messy places in our lives; those occurrences that can make life complex, confusing, and chaotic.
There will be a short video followed by a brief presentation on that evening’s topic, followed by discussion and doodling. Yes, there will be doodling because sometimes, when our words fail us, an image can say it all. Please feel free to bring a sack meal with you. Please register online or on the Adult Spiritual Growth bulletin board in the courtyard.
