New Summer Class

How would our lives change if we approached every experience with the intention of listening first? In this noisy, distracting world, it is difficult to truly hear. People talk past each other, eager to be heard but somehow deaf to what is being said. Listening is an essential skill for healthy relationships, both with God and with other people. But it is more than that: listening is a way of life. The winner of Christianity Today’s 2017 Book of the Year Award, Adam McHugh places listening at the heart of our spirituality, our relationships and our mission in the world.

Join us on Sundays, beginning June 2—August 25 for our new summer class, “The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction.”  Before the class begins, participants will need to purchase on their own the book, The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction, by Adam McHugh (available on Class will begin at 9 a.m. in Adult 5.
