Fellowship in Faith for Adults

Sundays from 10am to 11am

The Dean's Forum

Each Sunday morning there is an opportunity for adults to come together during Fellowship in Faith for spiritual conversation around diverse topics. Come and join an open and supportive conversation in which you will find yourself uplifted and encouraged on your spiritual journey. It is not necessary to make it to every session. Enough context is provided each week for you to join the conversation whenever you are able to attend.

Details on upcoming Dean's Forums are listed below.

Dean's Forum: Building Compassion for Self and Others with the Enneagram

Sundays, January 13th through 27th at 10am

Discover nine distinct ways of looking at the world using the nine personality types of the Enneagram. Do you approach the world through your head, your heart, or your gut? Do you tend to withdraw from conflict, do you face it head on, or do you look for common ground? Learn how these different styles of being in the world each have their own unique spiritual gift...and their own particular spiritual pitfalls.

In our first session, we will discuss the three types in the "Instinctual Intelligence" center, also called the "Gut Triad." What we can learn from the Challenger (8), the Mediator (9), and the Perfectionist (1) about being in touch with our intuition, our bodies, and our environment? No prior knowledge of the Enneagram is necessary! But if you're curious ahead of time, visit www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-descriptions/ to learn more.

A catechumen is a person receiving instruction in preparation for becoming a member of the church. In this class, you will learn the basics of Christian doctrine, practice, and living a Christian life. Father Delaney will lead the group in prayer, instruction, and conversation. This class is appropriate both for adults preparing to be received or confirmed in the Episcopal Church at the Easter Vigil, as well as for those who would simply like a refresher course.
