You are invited to attend an Adult Education class on "Christian Realism as a Response to Christian Nationalsim."
This class will begin April 4 at 6:00 pm. The book for the class is An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story. You may purchase the book in the Church Office for $15.00.
Why study Reinhold Niebuhr? First, Reinhold Niebuhr was someone who addressed the growing isolation and nationalistic spirit at home and abroad with what came to be called “Christian Realism.” Christian Realism is the way Christians are to judge good and evil not only within the world but also within the human heart in order to work for peace and justice, realizing that it can never be fully realized in this life. Second, the spirit of Christian Nationalism is on the rise again at home and abroad that needs to be addressed lest we find ourselves at war and history repeats itself.
On April 18th at 6:00 p.m. we will gather again at Park Villa to celebrate Earth Day with activities, food, and ice cream. We will also have on display information about how you might be a good steward of the earth’s precious resources. So, bring a side and we will provide the hot dogs and ice cream.
And on April 22nd join us for Earth Day at the 10:45 a.m. service as Rabbi Moti Rieber, the Executive Director of Kansas Interfaith Action is our guest speaker as he shares with us how we can be a good steward of God’s precious resources. Following the 10:45 a.m. service, you are invited to hear more about the great work that the Kansas Interfaith Action, a non-profit is doing in the state of Kansas. A light lunch and program will be in The Well.
Beginning January 1, 2018, the office will be open Monday-Thursday, from 9:00-4:00 and closed from 12:00-1:00 for lunch hour. The office will be closed on Fridays, except for a special event.
