Class Update 7/19

Our discussion of The Shack continued this week, with Amy facilitating discussion on chapters 10 and 11. We had a great discussion with a good sized group, as these chapters brought up some good questions. We've decided to slow our pace a little, and only cover 2 chapters a week, since these later chapters have quite a few good discussion topics, and we don't want to rush through... So, this week, we'll be covering chapters 12 and 13. Also, arrangements have been made for Rev. Marilyn Dixon to teach our class on Aug 16, to give a ministerial perspective on the book. Marilyn is a fantastic teacher, so you won't want to miss that Sunday, even if you haven't read the book!
The Beathards have found a documentary about different religions of the world, which has been brought up as a topic of interest in our class, so we'll be watching it and discussing in class over a few weeks in August and September after we complete The Shack. So, mark your calendars for that.

  • Don't forget that we will not be holding class on September 20th, since we'll be down at Whiterock Lake for the "Dog Day Afternoon" for Operation Kindness.
  • Our next class social event will be a pool party at the Beathards house in August (date TBD). We'll send out a poll, or an email to see which date works best, and get that scheduled...
Joys and Concerns:
  • Congrats again to KJ for passing her exam to be a certified counselor. Now, on to the 3000 hours of internship! If you know of any openings in this field (preferrably paid internships...), please let KJ know.
