The Superbowl “He Gets Us” ad campaign sought to reclaim the person of Jesus for a group’s own political purposes. But this attempt to define Jesus has been ongoing for two millennia.

Nowhere is that more true than in the world of art. Join Intern Minister George Grimm-Howell for a four-session Tuesday night March Zoom series called “One of Us.” This unique discussion series will explore Christian art from the earliest pre-Roman to the modern and subversive – and will seek to reclaim Jesus as the subversive he was.

Explore the transgressive and heretical from 7 to 8:30 p.m. March 7, 14, 21 and 28. You don’t have to commit to all four sessions. All are welcome, but please note that some adult themes will be discussed.

Ongoing “Poetry for Spiritual Growth” series

With Rev. Molly Housh Gordon
7 to 8:30 p.m. on the first Thursday each month – online

Join us for a contemplative series with poetry at the center. We will reflect on spiritual and theological questions using poetry as our source text. We will share some of our favorite poems. We will write, whether you prefer to journal or write your own poetry. And we will share our reflections, and perhaps our writing, with one another.

Please join us for any session even if you can’t make the whole series, and feel free to join in-person, online, or alternating how you attend. Please bring a notebook and pen and a favorite poem to each gathering!
