A time of discussion, reflection and information sharing is set aside nearly every Sunday morning, from 10:50 – 1200 for those who would like to reflect on issues of interest in their church, community, faith journey, and mission outside our congregation.
Past presentations have included a DVD series on Jesus from the Living the Questions program, discussion of the peace march led by Martin Luther King, information shared by those who have gone to the Holy Lands, information on Buddhism, information from those who work with disadvantaged folks in our community, the ultimate “recycling gift” of giving permission for organ donation and issues surrounding our church community and what it means to be of service to our fellow members of the larger community who may need extra assistance.
We follow the school year with Forum offerings but have had additional programs during the summer as well. The schedule for the month of April includes:
April 2nd – Annie Shaw with information about the Feed My Starving Children Program
April 9th – Greg Jackan from Remb’s Kundinger Funeral Home will present on “green funerals” and use of bio urns
April 23rd – Mark Nelson with information on “Sanctuary Movement: Welcoming the Stranger
April 30th – Participants in the Urban Immersion in the twin cities will report on their experiences with this project.
Anyone who has an interest in any of these topics is welcome to attend one of the forums. You need not be a member/friend of First Presbyterian Church to join us and join in the discussions.
