Being free — in Christ

Please join us on Monday, November 20, at 7:00 PM, for the third in a four-part series on freedom, facilitated by our own Rev. Meghan Mullarkey. The focus of this session will be a podcast by Dan Allendar on the notion of Sabbath.What does it mean that Jesus has set us free, and how do we live into that freedom? The first two meetings will explore (loving our) enemies and the power of hope to understand the freedom we have in Christ. The last two meetings will explore Sabbath and play as spiritual practices that help us live into that freedom.

The medium that Rev. Meghan will use is podcasts. For those unfamiliar with them, a podcast is like a radio broadcast or a TV show that you can hear or view at a time of YOUR choosing. There are many podcasts out there of interest to Christians, whether of Christian context or of more general interest. They can be inspirational, thought-provoking, or just plain fun. Through a podcast app, you can access them anytime on your phone or tablet, even with no Wi-Fi!

Bring your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to the class, and Rev. Meghan will show you how to subscribe to a podcast and how to access podcasts.

Each class will focus on one podcast and how its message relates to the essential notion of freedom through Christ. You are welcome to listen to the podcast in advance, or you can just come to the class and listen to it there.
