January 

  7          The Year of Living Biblically (narrative, wisdom, prophecy) (or an overview of the  Spring 2018 Adult Formation calendar)            

14          The Last Supper Before the Annual Meeting (annual meeting FAQ)

28        OT narrative: Gen thru Kings:  creation to captivity/exile in Babylon

January 7    This will be an overview of the entire spring forum schedule during which we will cover the overarching   movement through the entire scriptures, both old and new: narrative, wisdom, prophecy, John the Baptist, and the Messiah, parables, Pauline letters, and Revelation (thus, the Year of Living Biblically).  This spring- long series will generally entail exploring the biblical background of each subject, take a look at our own stories within the given biblical story, and how the lessons learned can inform us for living biblically in the 21st century.

January 14   The annual meeting is on the 21st, so today will give us the opportunity to ask questions and learn everything you didn’t know you wanted to know about the hows, whats, and whys of the annual meeting.

January 21  There will be no forum today due to the annual meeting (following the one service at 9:30 AM).

January 28   Today begins the Year of Living Biblically with an exploration of the creation narratives through Israel’s     captivity and exile in Babylon, looking at our own stories and how, together, they can inform our modern living.

During the entire spring forum schedule, we will cover the overarching movement through the entire scriptures, both old and new: narrative, wisdom, prophecy, John the Baptist (bridge prophet) and the Messiah, parables, Pauline letters, and Revelation (thus, The Year of Living Biblically - even though it’s only half the year!).  As we began in January, this spring-long series generally entails exploring the biblical background of each subject, taking a look at our own stories within the given biblical story, and how the lessons learned can inform us for living biblically in the 21st century.  We will welcome Elizabeth Kestler, Executive Director of Love Chapel, on February 11 to help us better understand how we can apply what we learn about living biblically.
