Religious Education for Adults

Enrichment throughout the Lifespan

 

We believe in lifelong learning and its potential for personal and societal transformation. To that end, we offer opportunities throughout the year for adult faith development. To find out about our upcoming programs for adults, please visit our calendar.

 

Rev. Margaret Weis facilitates a Pathway to Membership group twice annually, and there is a young-adult Pub Theology group that meets monthly. For more information on these programs, check out our newsletter.

Outside of these opportunities, there is a book group that meets to discuss intriguing and interesting pieces.

Other opportunities for spiritual enrichment and growth include:

 

Meditation Group

The Radiant Bell Sangha meditation group meets in Eddy Hall on Saturday’s from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Joanne Friday, who is an ordained Dharma teacher in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Tiep Hien Order (Order of Interbeing), agreed to be the guiding teacher of our group and is scheduled to meet with us every week. On the first Saturday, we follow a traditional sitting/walking/sitting meditation format, followed by a Dharma talk and Dharma sharing. On the second and third Saturday of every month, we follow the same sitting/walking/sitting meditation format, starting with a reading of Thich Nhat Hanh and concluding with a prayer circle and Dharma sharing. Radiant Bell Sangha is dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming and loving environment for anyone interested in joining a meditation community.

All are welcome.
