    Women of Note

    If you enjoy reading about strong women who had a impact on the human story, then this class is for you! History is all about his-story. In this circle, we’ll read about the women who had a part in forming our world, her-story. You’ll be amazed at how many women made significant contributions that were ignored or attributed to men. We’ll read about the strong women who held the home front while men were off fighting, too. There’s a saying, “behind every great man, there was an even greater woman.” Come and find out who they were! This class begins October 7.

    The plan is to read biographical novels. Our first one is about a woman little known, but highly influential, the one hidden behind the man she influenced.

    Bible Study

    Come read the Bible with me. This fall, starting October 4, we'll be studying the Gospel of John. Unlike the other gospels, John is not simply a story, but much more, and is notorious for being "difficult" to understand. We'll be using, The Good Wine: Reading God From the Center by Bruno Barnhart to unlock the message of John.

    I’ve studied the Bible all my life and have been a certified mentor for the University of the South for twenty years. All are welcome, regardless of faith practice, but please note that we will not be considering the Bible as inerrant truth, but rather a guide that contains many truths.

    History of Christianity

    Using Diarmond MacCullogh’s History of Christianity, The First Three Thousand Years, we’ll explore the influence of the faith that shaped world events for centuries. 

    Whispers of the Spirit

     A Faith Based Books Reading Circle

    This circle is for you if you wish to gain in your understanding of God and spirituality. We'll be reading and discussing these challenging books one chapter a week so that we can fully absorb the message the Spirit is whispering to us. The circle starts October 4 in the evening.
