The Lewinsville Forum led by Linton Brooks and David Morrison | Room 102A | Sept 18-Oct 23 | 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Our first Fall module will include another edition of the Lewinsville Forum, our class on Christian attitudes toward public policy issues. Once again, the class will be led by Linton Brooks and David Morrison. The class will be a series of discussions on individual issues so participants can choose which to attend. Probable issues include (1) discussion of the actions taken by the 2022 General Assembly, (2) a discussion of how Christians should balance the educational desire to expose children to the broadest array of literature with parents desire to control what their children are reading, using the ongoing issues in Loudoun county as one example, and (3) whether the emphasis on individuals rather than weapons in the recent bipartisan legislation to control mass shootings can provide insights to reducing the use of firearms in suicides. The facilitators would welcome ideas for other topics, which can be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Weavers Look at the Bible: A Hands-on Bible Study led by Meggie Lineberger | Library | Sept 18-Oct 9 | 9:30-10:30 a.m.
The Bible is full of references to spinning and weaving, which are trades that have disappeared from our twenty-first century consciousness. What does it mean when Job claims that his days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle? Or when Jesus tells his followers to consider the lilies of the field for they do not toil or spin? In this class, we will learn how to process fiber into cloth by using a drop spindle and loom to better understand the world view of the original Biblical audience.
Inquirers Class led by Pastor Scott | Room 102B | Sept 25-Oct 23 | 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Are you interested in joining Lewinsville Presbyterian Church? Are you interested in exploring, with a group of other folks at a similar point in their journeys, what participation in the life of a local congregation might look like? If you are, then plan to join us for the next “Inquirers’ Class,” which will be held in Room 102B, beginning on Sunday, September 25. We will meet during the education hour, from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m. Over the course of the class, we will explore our personal spiritual journeys, talk about the core beliefs of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and about the mission and ministry of Lewinsville Presbyterian Church at this point in its life. It is a wonderful opportunity to explore and learn together. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Pastor Scott.
