Adult Formation Classes

Writer and public theologian (and upcoming Lenten Preacher) Brian McLaren encourages congregations to imagine that they are schools for love. He describes churches as “each a locally and globally engaged school of love, teaching future generations to discover, practice, and live in love: love for our neighbor, love for ourselves, love for all creatures and all creation—all comprising love for God, who is all in all in all.”

 

Come back to school this fall and enroll in a school for love. Through classes, small groups, and regular worship at Calvary, we can learn to be lovers of this world, of each other, and of God. In outreach, in song, and in fellowship, we can fall more deeply in love with life. 

 

This fall, there are opportunities to learn more about the dynamic and sometimes difficult work of love. We will explore ways to love the world through a wide range of callings: in our work, through racial reconciliation, in prayer practices, in parenting and family life, and through the arts. We’ll meet individuals who are devoted to shaping the future of Memphis and folks who are committed to the future of Calvary. There are worthwhile classes for children and youth and ways for households of all shapes and sizes to explore love and faithfulness at this moment in history. If you’re ready to talk about things that matter and to fall back in love with the world around you, be here when the bell rings—the school for love at Calvary is in session.

Gleanings

When writer Kathleen Norris returned to church after decades away, the language of Christianity was a barrier. “Judgment,” “sinner,” “dogma,” and “salvation,” were all part of the faith’s “scary vocabulary.” Norris’s wrestling with those words became a book that’s remained in print for more than 20 years. Each week, a short chapter (2-3 pages) from Amazing … Continue reading "Gleanings"
