Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Formation: Kingian Nonviolence for Adults | 10:45 a.m. | Fireside Room

February  4th, 11th

A subcommittee of the Peace and Justice Commission, called Seeking Racial Justice in the Church, works at helping the church become a more antiracist congregation. One of the subcommittee members, Linda Himes, crafted a five-week Kingian Nonviolence Spiritual Formation series, with separate classes for all ages. Over the course of this Spiritual Formation series, participants will learn how to incorporate principles of Kingian nonviolence in their own lives. Weekly content for adults will be suited for anyone who has a relationship with children (i.e., caregivers, parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, educators, etc.) and will cover similar themes as those which will be taught in the children and youth sessions. Courage, love, emotional identification, and solutions-based communication will be just a few of the topics covered.

Adult Sessions led by Amanda Bennett and Ellen Sell.
