Wednesday Evenings Throughout Lent: Dinner and Discussion

During Lent we often join together on Wednesday evenings for dinner and discussion. This year we will be alternating between in person events and online gatherings so that more people can participate and yet we can still have a few in person meals together as well. We'll be watching TED Talks and then connecting them to scripture and the events of Holy Week that we're experiencing in Sunday worship. In all instances we'll gather for dinner at 6:30 (bring your dinner along when we're online) and then have a discussion from 7:30-8:30. Check out the calendar and topics below:
2/14 - Ash Wednesday In Person Worship at 7pm
2/21 - Online on Zoom - "Fighting with Nonviolence": Considering the Palm Sunday parade/protest
2/28 - In Person - "How to Make Peace by Getting Angry": Exploring Jesus turning over tables in the Temple
3/6 - Online on Zoom - "Infectious Generosity": The woman who anointed Jesus
3/13 - In Person - "It Takes a Community to Eradicate Hate": The Last Supper
