In addition to the Lenten Study on Engaging Spiritual Practices, Richard Draffin, Carol Mansfield, and Chris Tuttle will facilitate the conversation around a study called Jesus Christ Inc.

After the North Carolina legislature’s contentious season last year, a number of PC(USA) pastors began meeting to think of ways to engage our congregations in faith-filled conversation about these kinds of issues. A Pastoral Letter was crafted and later signed by over 150 North Carolina clergy. In partnership with the letter, Dr. Suzanne Henderson of Queens University in Charlotte prepared a curriculum — Jesus Christ Inc. — to explore what Jesus says about the Kingdom of God in the gospel of Mark, and slowly expand to issues addressed in the letter.

The study will meet over the four Thursdays in Lent – March 20, 27, April 3, 10 – in the Parlor from 7:30-8:30am. Coffee and bagels will be provided. Watch an introduction to the study below:
