This new study group will read and discuss The Great Divorce, by C. S. Lewis, a fantasy narrative about a journey from hell to heaven. We will meet for five sessions, beginning right after Easter: Wednesday mornings from ten to eleven-thirty, starting on April 19 and ending on May 17.
The only required reading will be Lewis’s book, but we will consider other literary and artistic visions of heaven and hell. For more information, contact group leader Joan Haug-West at

A conversation/study of what’s important to you in your life right now. We’ll look at how we build our own belief ideas using what we know already, what our individual history supports, scripture, and experience. All of this is enhanced by the required text for the class, Convictions by Marcus Borg.
The group is led by Carl Thomas
