"Traveling through Ephesians" Despite being imprisoned in Rome, Paul remained encouraged. He wrote to his believers, encouraging them to grow and mature in their faith, to be unified, to use their God-given gifts and ministries for the church, to conduct their relationships according to God's divine order, and to live an empowered Christian life. Join us for a nine-week study, as we explore themes in the prison epistle, Ephesians, and discover, or re-discover, ways to apply Paul's themes to our lives and our walk with Christ today. Tarra Taylor of Howard Divinity School will lead.

"Revelation, the Sublime, and Abstract Art" This four-week series explores how God communicates his eternal covenant, steadfast love, peace, mystery and limitlessness through the visual arts. We will start by looking closely at revelation and the ways the Holy Spirit works and speaks in the world, approaching the question through scripture and writings by early church fathers and various theologians. We will then delve into the concept of the Sublime as it has developed over time in philosophy, theology, literature and the visual arts. Finally we will discuss God’s presence in and communication through abstract painting and sculpture, looking at particularly resonant artists and artworks and inviting participants to share their own instances.
