BOOK GROUPS

Mom’s Book Study and Fellowship Hour

Meets Wednesdays | 10:00-11:30 a.m. | Parlor

Join Transfiguration’s weekly Mom’s Group this spring as they study the full Daring Way curriculum, based on the work of Brene Brown around shame, vulnerability, courage, and how to live a wholehearted life.  While the curriculum is not spiritually based, the class in Mom’s Group will delve into how living a wholehearted life is a part of our formation as Christians. This class will be taught by Mother Erin Jean Warde, a Certified Daring Way Facilitator since February 2015 after Brene Brown’s work transformed her own life and ministry.  The program officially begins this Wednesday, January 18 and continues through May.  All moms are welcome every Wednesday morning – childcare is provided. 

 

Nurturing Faith Through Fiction

Meets monthly on the First Thursday | 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

This group, organized by Ron Damholt, meets monthly to explore and to be engaged by fine works of fiction, either a novel read preceding the meeting or a film they screen together. In their discussions they consider questions such as the moral qualities of the characters, the presence and leading of God in the work, the author’s exploration of good and evil, of justice and injustice. And they are regularly being challenged by the movie or by the text to more obedient, faithful living.

This summer this group will be watching (and discussing) movies. On July 6 they’ll screen The Tree of Life (2011, directed by Terrence Malick), and on August 3 they’ll watch The Crucible (1996, directed by Nicholas Hytner). During the summer, they are also reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s great 1890 novel The Brothers Karamazov, which will be the topic for discussion at the meeting on September 7. Questions? Contact Ron Damholt at rdamholt@att.net.
