SUNDAY MORNINGS 8:30 - 10:00 AM
Contemporary Christian Roundtable
Current study is “The Ageless Soul”, by Thomas Moore.
“In Ageless Soul, Moore focuses on how older adults can transform the challenges of late life into opportunities to develop and express the most enduring element of our nature – our soul.
Aging is a challenge, not an automatic activity. You go through passages, from one state to another. You become somebody. Faced with a challenge, you choose to live through the obstacle rather than avoid it. You make the decision to be in process and to participate actively.”
Moore’s background in clinical psychology gives him a framework that appeals to a wide range of readers. He moves easily between reflection and storytelling as a way to illustrate his main point: aging provides unlimited possibilities.” St. Martin’s Press
We will cover it by a section with three (3) chapters/sections with each facilitator staying with a section instead of a chapter. They may choose to cover 1 or 3 chapters on a Sunday.

STARTS DECEMBER 1 AT 9:00 am AND DECEMBER 2 AT 4:00 pm
One night at a dinner party during Advent, James Howell sat next to Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Kevin Siers. As they chatted, Siers commented that his favorite Christmas carol phrase was that phrase from O Little Town of Bethlehem that says, “…the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. “ That remark stayed with Howell, and he began thinking about how often he’d sung Christmas songs over the years without giving much thought to the words. Out of that reflection, Rev. Howell wrote Why This Jubilee? Advent Reflections on Songs of the Season. This Advent we’ll use the book Why This Jubilee? Advent Reflections on Songs of the Season for a devotional study of Christmas carols as we reflect on the significance of the season in the hope we'll enter afresh into God’s great Jubilee – a season of joy and liberation – while we prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birth. This study will be offered on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am in the Youth Room beginning December 1 with a repeat session offered each Monday at 4:00 pm beginning December 2 for those who cannot make the Sunday sessions. Please contact the church office by November 12 to reserve your free copy of this book!
