The 10 o’clock hour offers a variety of Spiritual Formation opportunities; today’s are listed below.
Meditation—This ancient Christian spiritual practice includes three parts: opening meditation, walking meditation and closing meditation.
Church School—a safe, loving and fun experience for young people age 4 through 12th grade. We ground our study of God’s ways in Christian and Hebrew scripture, interfaith perspectives and faith stories. We are open to questions about faith, and equip children for their lifelong faith journey. We help our children and young people understand how faith intersects with what happens in their life and in the world around them, as well as how they can be change agents to create a most just world. Allowing the freedom of the seeker of any age is a core value of our progressive Christian community, as is respecting all faiths. We embrace diverse families.
Spirit Moves—Would you like to explore your spirituality through movement? With yoga, dance and guided imagery, we will explore what it means to use our bodies to discover our spiritual selves. Each week, we will express a different theme through the medium of our bodies. Using a wide range of music, we will find the moving person inside each of us. This class is designed for all ages and abilities.
Spiritual Care for the Kids You Love—This exploration time is designed for any adults—parents, grandparents, teachers, mentors or others—who wish to learn more about how to deepen their spiritual relationships with the children in their lives.
Forum—Pillsbury United Communities: Our Shared History and Future. Learn about the shared history of Pillsbury United Communities (PUC) and Plymouth Congregational Church and the ways that PUC continues to create choice, change and connection in community today. Adair Mosley was named President and CEO of Pillsbury United Communities in December 2017.
The Collapse of the Three Story Universe: Christianity in an Age of Science
This is a study of Dan Wolpert’s latest book, the Collapse of the Three-Story Universe: Christianity in an Age of Science. In our modern era, many of the classic theological formulations of our faith are based upon a view of the universe that we now know to be untrue. There is no old guy up in the sky! This book study will be an exploration of the theological categories of the Christian faith from the perspective of what we now know about the universe. How can we understand these categories in light of modern science? What do we really mean by Progressive Christianity? How is our faith relevant and transformational in today’s world? These are just some of the questions the class will address.
