Geneva’s Adult Education program meets each Sunday, at 9 am in the fellowship room downstairs. Combining the focus of our Vocation|Formation program with Adult Ed, this year’s study will explore three key questions:
1) What does it mean to be a community of calling?
2) How do we as a community cultivate an economy that supports each individual’s vocation?
3) What practical steps can we take to answer God’s calling, both individually and collectively?
Readings for the year will include relevant articles, and three books:
– Slow Church: Cultivating Community in the Patient Way of Jesus, by C. Christopher Smith, and John Pattison
– Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire, by William Cavanaugh
– A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in and Instant Society, by Eugene Peterson).
Scheduled Guest Speakers:
C. Christopher Smith – Englewood Church, IN
William Cavanaugh – DePaul University, IL
Ashley Woodiwish – Erskine College, SC
Cameron Anderson – Executive Director, Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA)
Mike Koval – Madison Chief of Police
All adults are welcome to join the conversation as we engage questions around the topic of vocation, explore the centrality of God’s calling in the work of the church, and discuss how we can be more prepared to answer as servants to a world in need.
