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:

    • The Tears we Cannot Stop; A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson
    • The Centered Life by Jack Fortin
    • The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical by Shane Claiborne
    • Faith as a Way of Life: A Vision for Pastoral Leadership by Christian Scharen
    • Faith Formation 2020: Designing the Future of Faith Formation by John Roberto
    • 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
    • The Road to Character by David Brooks
    • Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
    • Laudato Si, Pope Francis' encyclical on climate change
    • Resurrrecting Democracy by Luke Bretherton.

Members and friends have also started fellowship groups that create other spaces for discussion. Current examples include the men's group , meeting the first Friday of the month, 6:30-7:30am, at Butter  Bakery and Cafe, and the women's group, meeting weekly on Thursday mornings, 7:00-9:00am, at Birchwood Cafe.
