All are welcome to join us at 10:10 a.m. in the Dining Room for the second session in the Adult Forum Series:

Reflections on Birthing the Body of Christ led by Dr. Natalie Weaver, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Ursuline University. Watch the first session on St. Paul’s Youtube channel.

In the second session on December 9: Expecting Jesus — In the second session, we will develop a theology of the body in dialogue with motherhood in the infancy narratives.  Our topics will include the vulnerability of the body, the sexual person, and the deeply human need to be received and sheltered in our bodily fragility, especially during times of transition and risk.

Looking ahead in this series…
December 16:
Breathing the Spirit — In the third session, we will discuss the challenges of preparing ourselves for delivering and receiving the Holy Spirit in our lives.  As God’s ongoing embodiment, the Body of Christ meets daily challenges to prepare itself for the Lord. Inspired by Mary and Jesus’ story, how might we prepare ourselves for Christ this Advent season?
