Common Table Learning Opportunities for Session 2

Classes begin March 1, 6:30-7:30 pm.
Click on a class title to register online.

Peace-Filled Conversations: Learning to Listen and Talk Like Jesus.
Led by Pastor Brad Strawn & Rick Jackson, MFT | Reed Hall, Room 249
This class will be an experience in learning how to engage in peace filled, Christ-like conversations around difficult topics. It will be experiential in nature combining embodied practices of learning to settle ourselves, think theologically about Christ's approach to those that he differed with and practices for how to enter into genuine conversations that might change all involved. This is NOT a class on winning arguments, persuasion or being right. This is a class on growing in the image and likeness of the self-emptying sacrificial Christ that we worship.

Women’s Wednesday Experience
Twelve More Women of the Bible Study Guide: Life-Changing Stories for Women
Led by Joan Watkins & Cathy Cota | Gilmore Hall, South
Through twelve sessions, with each focusing on one Biblical woman, this fresh look at the women of the Bible helps women discover new insights and provides a powerful witness to God’s gracious love that will leave you feeling challenged, encouraged, and deeply valued. 

The Paradoxes of Jesus
Led by Dr. Walker Railey | Reed Hall, Room 248
This class will focus on Jesus' encounters with others. Through these encounters we will see how Jesus defined the New Covenant then and now.
