where: 2nd floor, noel's ark (behind the kitchen)

A conversation-based class for 20/30-somethings (and other critical-thinking questioners) who are interested in exploring ways that faith and spirituality can practically shape our everyday lives. Topics of conversation will vary––including but not limited to: art, science, current events, social issues, spiritual practices, history, theology, etc. Podcasts, TED Talks, videos, articles, and personal stories will often help to generate discussion.

Coffee & breakfast snacks will be available. (Because mornings are just better with these things, right?)
