Sunday Forum 9/16/2018 @ Fellowship Hall

Fall, 2018  Rooted in Generosity: God creates, gathers, renews and cares for the whole universe, and calls each one of us to be generous in our lives. Join us at Sunday Forum, as we together grow in faith, celebrate God’s generosity toward us, and reflect on our own opportunities to give to others.

9/16/18  Rooted in GenerosityGlimpsing Resurrection: Cancer, Trauma and Ministry – Deanna Thompson  In her newest book, Deanna “resurrects Christian traditions.. and brings to life the space in which we can live with the honesty of suffering, lament, solitude and community (Monica A. Coleman).”  Reflecting courageously on the trauma she faced when diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, and drawing on her expertise as a biblical scholar, Deanna describes ways the church can respond to those whose lives are undone by illness. Deanna, a member of Gloria Dei, teaches religion at Hamline University. Copies of her book will be available for sale.  (Please note:  Bishop Herb Chilstrom is unable to be with us as planned, as he is recovering from illness.) Forum meets at 9:30 in Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome.

Forum meets in Fellowship Hall on Sundays of the school year, 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.  All are welcome.
