New Adult Classes Offered Wednesdays at UNITE Starting March 4

5pm: Living a Life That Matters Book Study
CONTACT: Rev. Dr. John Regan jregan@fccedmond.org 405.341.3544
Beginning Wednesday, March 4, Rev. Dr. John Regan will lead a book study group on Rabbi Harold Kushner’s book "Living a Life That Matters" at 5pm in the Library (room 130). Kushner describes the human challenge of living in two different worlds. The first world is the day-to-day world we know best. It is the ordinary world of getting up in the morning, going to school, going to work, and making a living. This is the world that picks winners and losers, makes judgments about beauty and ugliness, and champions the winners of competition. The second world is the world of faith, the world of the spirit. Rabbi Kushner, now 84 years old, explores what it means to live in both these worlds and how we might fashion lives that matter. There are things that we need – relationships, connections, faith, work to do for causes beyond ourselves, and ways to make a difference. Copies of the book are available in the pastoral office for $10. Copies available on the night of the first class (Wednesday, March 4th at 5:00 pm). If you are interested in learning more, contact John (above).

6:30pm: Book Study & Discussion - Soul Repair: Healing the Wounds of Moral Injury
CONTACT: Rev. Dr. John Regan jregan@fccedmond.org 405.341.3544
Plan to attend a new Wednesday night adult class taught by Rev. Dr. David Hockensmith, a retired Disciples of Christ minister and member of FCC. The class begins March 4 at 6:30pm in room 117 and will run through April 22. This class presents an introduction to moral injury, its causes, symptoms, and spiritual resources for healing by discussing the book, "Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury after War" by Dr. Rita Brock. Copies of the book can be found in the pastoral office for $10.

There are people in the pews of every church in America who suffer from moral injury. While moral injury is often related to the military, it is not limited to service members or veterans. Any human being who violates his or her moral core may experience feelings of remorse and shame that can affect quality of life and the quality of life of families and communities. As a community that seeks to inform and nurture the spirit, First Christian Church offers this introduction to moral injury as an opportunity to help build spiritually resilient Christians and positively impact our neighbors.
