Facilitated by Pastor James, Faith Development is a contemporary outgrowth to what has traditionally been referred to as Sunday School, Bible Study, or Religious Education. In Faith Development, we gather for group discussion of a wide range of spiritual topics. Faith Development is usually composed of reading a book, watching a video, or listening to a presentation, followed by open-ended questions and dialogue. The participants prayerfully learn from one another as each person shares unique experiences, insight, and enlightenment, especially as relevant to our current particular situations and daily lives. We typically meet Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the church facilities.
Advent Faith Development
For our Advent Faith Development, we will explore in group discussions a book called “The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective,” by Richard Rohr and Andreas Ebert.
The Enneagram is an excellent tool to help people on their way to spiritual and mental growth. The Enneagram is a personality typology that has its roots in 4the century monks who lived as hermits in pursuit of self-knowledge and transformation in order to find a deeper and more authentic relationship with God.
We will meet using Zoom from 6:30 to 8:00 pm on December 2, 9, 16, and 23. Participants are expected to obtain their own book.
