Adult Education

Soulwork

Sundays, 9:00 a.m. in the Ford Room

St. Bede’s program of Christian education for adults nurtures our spiritual lives and helps us grow into the full stature of Christ. Members of the church, clergy, staff, or outside speakers facilitate 3- to 5-week series on various topics suggested by parishioners, allowing for deep exploration of a subject from several angles. As we learn together, we wrestle with some of life’s biggest problems, and we come to know Jesus more fully and follow him more closely.

All are welcome at any time, whether you’ve attended previous Sundays in a series or not. Childcare is available by advance request.

Recent topics have included:

    • The Cross and the Lynching Tree by James H. Cone
    • The Gospel of Matthew
    • Spiritual Practices for Advent
    • Restorative Justice
    • Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande
