Alcohol and Substance Abuse by Young People
Presented by Kimberly Fields, a substance abuse counselor in the Guilford County School System and daughter of the Rev. John E. Shields
The Rev. D. Dixon Kinser will lead a six-part class titled, The Governance of God: How to be Politically Christian in the Modern World in Colhoun A on October 9, 16, 23, 30, November 6 and 13.
Using Bible study, church history and cultural criticism, Dixon will lead a six-week exploration of the place politics does and does not have in the Church as well the place the Church does and does not have in politics. Scheduled during the 2016 Presidential contest, this class mixes lecture, discussion and, most importantly, spiritual practices to resource Jesus followers who want their faith to be faithful this election year.
The Rev. Darby O. Everhard, Associate Rector, and Anne Rahn, Senior Adults Minister, will lead a three-part series, The Spirituality of Letting Go and Living Forward, on October 30, November 6 and 13 in Colhoun B and C.
This class will reflect on letting go and stewardship of what really matters in life. This life is not the end of the life that God has in mind for us. The focus of the discussion will be on learning to live a life you can look back on in peace and living forward into the future to which God calls us. There will also be practical conversations on preparing for care at the end of life.
