Adult Education: Sojourners Class

This class will include viewing a short film (10-15 minutes) of Walter Brueggemann’s lectures, followed by group discussion and spiritual practices. There is no prior knowledge required, as we will reflect on films watched in class, and you can drop in any week!

This film series with Walter Brueggemann discusses thoughts from his book, Materiality as Resistance: Five Elements for Moral Action in the Real World. Materiality as Resistance is textured teaching about who we are called to be in the world through the lens of loving God, loving ourselves, and loving our neighbor. Walter discusses faith and our responsibility to one another, how churches can model collaborative social structure, and goes so far as to invite individual believers and church leadership to start considering making decisions with the neighbor and neighborhood in mind.
