Adult Faith Formation
Returning November 4, 9:05 a.m.
The Celts came to Christianity with their own viewpoint, distinct from Greco-Roman thought. They brought a deep appreciation of nature and the ability to commune with God directly in nature. They teach us that what is deepest within us is the image of God, which has been covered over by selfishness but has never been diminished or destroyed. We'll introduce Celtic thought and look at several great saints, their liturgies and writings. In the end, we will see the possibility of another tradition of Christian thought that teaches tolerance, persistence and a tough but gentle kindness that begins with a recognition of our basic goodness.
Sunday, November 4, 4:30 p.m. 6:30 p.m.
A time for families with young children to grow together in faith.
