They are part of a small but growing segment of that movement who worry that this trend is a turning away from the teachings of Jesus.

Our adult religious education class is now a dual-platform class — meeting in person in the church social hall and also on Zoom.

For this Sunday, we will be viewing and discussing a TED Talk by
Krista Tippett (host of NPR’s “On Being with Krista Tippett”) titled “Three Practices for Wisdom and Wholeness.”

Based on years of interviews with some of the wisest people from all aspects of public life, Krista Tippett shares ideas on how we keep hope and courage alive amid “the pain and promise of the world.”

The video is short so we will have plenty of time to stretch out with some big ideas.
