The United Churches of North Toronto have teamed up to offer a year-round program of adult education. We invite everyone, whether they attend church or not, to explore spirituality with us by attending!
Our offerings this year kickoff with a workshop entitled “The Art of the Sacred,” where class members will both explore the Psalms and the Lord’s Prayer, and experiment with writing their own. Two book-club groups will follow. First off we’ll read Marcus Borg’s last book, Convictions; How I learned What Matters Most, and that will be followed by reading Phillip Newell’s The Rebirthing of God: Christianity’s Struggle for New Beginnings. Our final offering will be a class entitled “Constantly Becoming.” This group will explore Christianity’s beliefs about things like prayer, worship, the sacraments, confession and forgiveness from a theologically progressive point of view.
