Join Adult Study Hour for two weeks of special guests:
Sunday, November 9 -- 9:30am
Guest Speaker/Musician: Bryan Moyer Suderman
"Dystopian Novels/Movies and the Adventure of Following Jesus"What are our youth up to at their retreat this weekend? Bryan Moyer Suderman is spending Friday-Saturday with the youth, and will be with us at SJMC on Sunday morning. In this Adult Study Hour class, Bryan will share some of what he is exploring with youth and leaders at their retreat. Why are dystopian novels/movies like The Hunger Games and Divergent so popular? Can it be that paying attention to these stories can, in some way, prepare us in a new way to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus? Can we read the Gospel of Mark, and even the Bible as a whole, as a kind of "dystopian literature"…?
Sunday, November 16 -- 9:30am
Guest Speakers: Sara Wenger Shenk and Ken Hawkley
The Ministry of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS)
Come for a conversation with the AMBS President and AMBS Director of Development as they explore significant issues of both the seminary and the broader church.
