Adult Faith Formation
February 10: Women of the New Testament, Part one. Ruth Larson will lead us in “At the Well and on the Road: Women Back-Talking God,” plus “Mary and Martha: Jesus’ Family of choice.” We are back into Alice Connor’s book, Fierce!
February 17: Rev. Innocent Anthony, a Master in Theology student at Luther Seminary, from the LCCN in Nigeria will share an update on the LCCN, plus an update on Nigeria, so as to better understand our partnership with any Nigerian church moving forward. We will hear more about his calling when he returns to Nigeria, and what his work will be. We look forward hearing personal stories of adapting to life here in Minnesota – and how the church services are the same or different.
February 25: “The Mask You Live In” While many of the VoP women are on retreat, a portion of this movie will be shown and discussed as an educational component of our Cherish All Children ministry. “The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s limited definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, they confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify women, and resolve conflicts through violence. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
