    Adult Formation | Seeing in a New Light

    October Adult Forums: Practicing Politics for People of Faith We are in the midst of what may be the most polarizing and contentious election in recent U.S. history. Many observers note that the political rancor and rhetoric has reached all time highs, injecting unprecedented fear, division, and unease into our culture. Grace's October adult forums will focus on the 2016 election and engage questions such as: How do we make sense of this? How do people of faith respond? How do we remain calm and centered amidst our difference and tension, taking our roles as peacemakers and even prophets, seriously? We will use Church Next's online course Bridging the Political Divide by educator, author, and activist Parker Palmer as the jumping off point for our discussions. No need to sign up online, simply come and participate in Grace adult forums every Sunday after the 10am service.
