Description: This five-week series addresses some of the most pressing theological and relevant practical issues facing the church in the 21st century. Why is church membership shrinking? Is there something more to Christianity than what we have been taught? Did Christ come to save us from our sins, or was there another reason? Does Christianity impact the environment? These sessions are designed to bring us to a more mature understanding of a Christian experience of the world from a Franciscan perspective. Each session will begin with a short contemplative prayer and a video by Richard Rohr, OFM. This series provides a place for discussion and a safe space to ask questions about Christ and the Church, especially those questions that you may have always been afraid to ask. Whether you are a longtime church member or a person who simply has an interest in the topics, you are welcome.

The resource book that accompanies these sessions is “Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy” by Richard Rohr and Tim Scorer published by Morehouse Educational Resources. The resource is available through the Center for Action and Contemplation at https://cac.org/. The book is simply a reference and is NOT required reading.
