Faith Development Offering with Rev. Jan

Join Rev. Jan for monthly “drop-in, come when you can” gatherings devoted to exploring contemporary essays and short stories. These discussion groups will meet monthly on the dates below from 12:15 to 1:15 and will run through June 2018. Feel free to bring your lunch to the discussion groups.

"How Do You See It?": Exploration of Essays  
This group will explore contemporary essays taken from the recently released volume, The Best American Essays of 2015, edited by Ariel Levy. As we read each essay on our own, we will ask, “How do I see it?” and then when we gather, we will invite one another to answer the question, “How do you see it?”
