Other Adult Discussions

Our Saviour's welcomes questions. We foster several opportunities for discussion, whether you've been with us for five minutes or fifty years.

During the academic year:

  • Adult Forums
  • Community Meals. Our Wednesday night community meals, offered during the academic year as part of Wednesday Connections, provide good food and space for informal discussion. Ideas for more systematic study sometimes begin here.

From time to time during the year, we offer multi-week sessions:

  • Living Questions. Small group discussions for newcomers and their sponsors (current members) to explore questions of faith together.
  • Book study. We also hold occasional book study groups in which members ponder what it means to be church, modern issues in Christian living, and more. Some recent readings have included:

    • Signs of Belonging: Luther’s Marks of the Church and the Christian Life by Mary Hinkle Shore
    • A Good Time for the Truth; Race in Minnesota, Sun Yung Shin, editor
    • The Centered Life by Jack Fortin
    • The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical by Shane Claiborne
    • America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose by James Atwood
    • Leading Lives that Matter: What We Should Do and Who We Should Be by Dorothy C. Bass and Mark R. Schwehn
    • The Muslim Next Door: The Qur’an, the Media, and That Veil Thing
      by Sumbul Ali-Karamali
    • She Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological Discourse
    • Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
    • Laudato Si, Pope Francis' encyclical on climate change

Members and friends have also started fellowship groups that create other spaces for discussion. Current examples:
