Cultivating Community Using the Enneagram

Deepen your relationship with God this fall by better understanding yourself and who God created you to be. The Enneagram is one tool that can help you articulate your flaws (fixations/deadly sin?) and recognize your truest self. Join Pastor Jenny McLellan and Kate Elkins for an introduction to The Enneagram, an ancient personality system, and learn how to cultivate stronger relationships between yourself, others, and God. Class will meet via Zoom on Sunday mornings at 9-10:30 am.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pastor Jenny at jmclellan@redeemer.org and/or kelkins@redeemer.org.

Be Still and Journey at 9:00 am

This Sunday morning class  is for women of all ages.

Mysteries of Faith at 9:00 am

Paul Hermann and Peter Quist lead a new multi-week class: “The Importance of Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Cultivating the Beloved Community”.

This is not a biographical study of Bonhoeffer although we will review his timeline and the context in which Bonhoeffer’s theology was developed.  We examine excerpts from Bonhoeffer’s seminal book, Discipleship, and the book, Religionless Christianity: Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Troubled Times, by Dr. Jeffrey Pugh, formerly of  Elon University, a leading scholar on Bonhoeffer’s theology.  We compare “cheap grace” (Christian piety removed from the world’s suffering, grace without discipleship) and “costly grace” (a disciple of Christ who is a friend of suffering, the loss of a job, reputation and even life, accepting nothing from the world but everything from Christ). We review Bonhoeffer’s take on the Sermon on the Mount and its implied radical proscriptions against colonialism, militarism and even unfettered capitalism.

Guest Lecture:  Who Killed Bonhoeffer?  By Dr. Reggie Williams
