Adult Education Class
Class will meet on Zoom

The 10 am Adult Education hour will continue on Zoom each Sunday during January and February will be a discussion of the book The Spirituality of Imperfection: Storytelling and the Search for Meaning. This book is available new, used, and from the public library. You do not need to read the book to enjoy the discussion, but it is encouraged. From the back cover: “’ I am not perfect’ is a simple statement of profound truth, the first step toward understanding the human condition—for to deny your essential imperfection is to deny your own humanity.”

This book brings together the wisdom stories of many spiritual traditions. Through thoughtful commentary and more than one hundred vividly told tales, it enables us to accept the inevitability of pain and failure so that we can ease the hurt and move toward serenity and wholeness. 

Here’s the chapter and facilitator schedule for January:

Jan 2: Introduction and Chapter 1 – The Fragrance of a Rose
