Adult Education – February 2016

Art and Mary Hunt will lead a three-part discussion of peacemaking and being a peacemaker during the adult education hour on the consecutive Sundays of February 7, 14 and 21.  What is peacemaking? How do you get started? Why do we need it?  What part might you play?  What are your questions and concerns?

The three sessions will cover Peacemaking, Injustice and Potential Responses with an emphasis on your questions and concerns.

Art and Mary hope you find the sessions engaging, challenging, and informative. The second session will include their personal observations from their trip to Palestine with the Tree of Life in March 2015.… Continue
