Explorer Series offering four-week seminars on a range of topics related to social justice and spirituality.

This course is an introduction to Environmental Justice through the faith lens. We will explore God’s design for humanity and the great need to reshape the narrative that exists today. Through today’s challenges, the course will explore the harmful effects of pollution from a macro and a micro level. And more closely, our eyes are opened to the extreme effects of pollution on people in vulnerable communities. And finally, what steps can we take to advocate for the health and well-being of our brothers and sisters in places where corporate greed has too often overwhelmed and suppressed human need?

Most of us probably know at least a few Bible stories and memory verses because of children’s songs learned from teachers, parents, and grandparents. Our hymnody and contemporary music teach Biblical stories and themes, as well. In this course, we will look at favorite hymns and other worship songs, Biblical stories, and Biblical themes for deepening our understanding of our faith. For those charged with planning worship, this exploratory course offers tips and tools for choosing music for congregational singing and ensemble presentations that enhance the themes and stories of Biblical passages chosen for proclamation.
