Adult Education

Christian Mysticism

ANNOUNCEMENT: Adult education has been moved to 10:00 AM on Sundays.

Our current adult education topic is Christian Mysticism.  Each week we will be talking about what exactly Christian Mysticism is and what it means to us now.  We will do this by studying the Christian Mystics themselves, starting with the early church, and moving all the way through the modern era. 

This coming Sunday we're going to be cherry picking a couple of folks so that we can finish with the medieval period of mysticism and move on towards the modern era.  We will be looking at Meister Eckhart and Julian of Norwich.  We have been using Christian Mystics: Their Lives and Legacies throughout the Ages, by Ursula King.  Here are relevant excerpts from King's book for this week:

Meister Eckhart
Julian of Norwich

This is a lot of reading, and so don't feel pressured or required to work your way through it all.  The adult education time is intended to encourage conversation and wondering, not dread and anxiety.
