WHAT'S SO AMAZING ABOUT GRACE? by Philip Yancey | Led by Carole Capen
We speak of grace, but do we understand it? More importantly, do we truly believe it and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words? In What's So Amazing About Grace, author Philip Yancey explores grace at a street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a cruel and pain-filled world?

THE ATTENTIVE LIFE by Leighton Ford | Led by Marilyn Young
This class will rely on the book The Attentive Life by Leighton Ford (Discovering God's Presence in All Things). Each of us is called to a life patterned after Jesus Christ. This life isn't shaped by inner compulsions or outside expectations; instead, it is drawn by the inside voice of love. To listen to this voice, we need to pay attention to where our inner and outer selves are disconnected, so as to develop a new pattern that reflects the life of Christ both in our inner being and our ministering to others.
