This Wednesday at Wilshire

Wednesday, October 17  - Come for Koinonia Cafe lunch in Community Hall beginning at 11 a.m., and then stay for the Bible study at noon. Koinonia Cafe dinnerbegins at 5 p.m. in Community Hall followed by adult classes (below), Music & Missions for kids, Watershed for youth and Gallery Cafe. 

Accidental Theologies class. On Wednesday, Oct. 17, Pastoral Resident Matt Dodrill will continue a two-week 6 p.m. class inspired by the writings of poet Christian Wiman. Sometimes the best theology is found in non-theological texts such as letters, essays, poems and short stories, what Wiman calls “accidental theology.” Come explore the significance of discerning truths about God, revelation, beauty and human nature from literature not intended to be “theological.”

Work Matters: A Theology of Labor & Leisure. On Wednesday, Oct. 17, Pastoral Residents Jared Jaggers and Ryan Wilson will continue a two-week series at 6 p.m. discussing a Christian understanding of work as participation in the character of God and also the roll of leisure in our lives. American culture has taught us that we need to work as much as possible to find worth and value, but research shows people are more dissatisfied than ever in their work. How might our Christian faith empower us to find meaning in our work? Is ceaseless activity the primary goal for our lives?
