Plymouth members will now have the opportunity to enjoy Spiritual Exploration classes throughout the year. Starting in May, the Spiritual Exploration Committee is introducing a new term that will run through August. The next term will go from September through December, and a third term will run January through April. The committee hopes the change will provide more options to meet seasonal and intergenerational needs.
Classes scheduled to kick off the Spring/Summer term include
- “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Government Segregated America,” presented by the Racial Justice Initiative, and related to an April Zoom presentation by Richard Rothstein;
- “Pilgrimage to the Lake of the Isles,” presented by the Plymouth Contemplatives and led by Emily Jarrett Hughes;
- “Forest Bathing,” a series of monthly walks presented by Johanna Schussler, Certified Forest Therapy guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT);
- a book study presented by the Racial Justice Initiative on “When They Call You A Terrorist;”
- two Zoom classes and a nature walk led by David Astin, entitled “The Spirit of Nature: What Gifts Does the Spring Bird Migration Bestow?” and;
- a book study lead by Rev. Beth Hoffman Faeth based on Sarah Griffith Lund’s “Blessed Are Crazy: Breaking the Silence About Mental Illness, Family, and Church.”
More details will be available in early April.
