Adult Wednesday 6 p.m. studies starting March 20:

  • WDJD: What Did Jesus Do? Remember the bracelets prompting us to consider “What Would Jesus Do?” But have you ever considered what Jesus did do? Specifically, how did Jesus’ actions bring about our salvation? That question will guide the pastoral residents in a new Wednesday night study exploring themes and models of salvation and their connection to Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Join the four-week study in Room 1205-G beginning March 20 at 6 p.m.
  • Finding Fred. “Would you be mine, could you be mine, won’t you be my neighbor?” People of all ages continue to resonate with the message embodied and communicated by Fred Rogers on his iconic television show, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. How has his legacy shaped who we are and affected our presence in the world? Wilshire member Shawn Ashmore will facilitate a four-week Wednesday night conversation on themes modeled by Mr. Rogers — simplicity, kindness, wonder and vocation. Join the neighborhood to listen, share and laugh with one another. All neighbors welcome beginning March 20 in Room 1205-L at 6 p.m.

47 Days of Choir: How would you like to focus on a spiritual practice this year during Lent? One way to fulfill this goal is to sing with Sanctuary Choir just during Lent, culminating on Easter Sunday, April 21. There are seven Wednesday rehearsals and seven Sunday services from Ash Wednesday to Easter. Augustine wrote, “One who sings prays twice.” The choral anthems to be rehearsed and sung during Lent will lead singers to both pray and sing. To take up this challenge, come to Choral Hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. For more information, contact Doug Haney at (214) 452-3123.
