Events and Classes
Education Hour | Sabbath Economics
February 19 & 26 — Our own Betsy Voelker will share insights from Walter Brueggemann’s book, Sabbath Economics, and talk about how our practice of Sabbath has far reaching implications for the ways in which we spend our time and money.
Education Hour meets between Sunday services (~ 9:05–9:50 am) in Wilson Hall. Please join us for a variety of discussions, lectures and topics!
Shrove Tuesday Potluck
February 28 — Shrove Tuesday has been celebrated all over the world as a last great feast before the fast of Lent. This year, we're going to do a potluck of pure indulgence. What's the one food that YOU think of as the peak of indulgence? A bucket of KFC? That mac and cheese recipe that has three pork products in it? Triple chocolate brownies? A tub of Cool Whip? Bring it to share! We'll put out tablecloths and have a good time. The only rule is to enjoy it! February 28, 6pm, Undercroft.
March 1 — Ash Wednesday services will be held at 12pm and 7pm in the sanctuary.
Ashes-To-Go will be available on UW campus in Red Square from 2:30 to 4pm.
March & April — Ash Wednesday will mark our entry into another season of repentance and preparation. As we enter Lent, you’re invited to join us Sunday mornings during Education Hour as part of your Lenten practice, to both learn and practice some of the spiritual disciplines that make our Christian spiritual heritage rich and dynamic. This five week series will begin on March 5, and run through April 2. Meet in Wilson Hall at 9:05am.
Our Wednesday evening Lenten Class will be held from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The focus this year will be on Black Lives Matter, and what that movement means in our particular context and moment. The class will be structured on an adaptation of the Black Lives Matter Syllabus, developed by Frank Leon Roberts at NYU. Everyone is encouraged to bring a snack or light dinner/finger food to share with the group. This class will begin March 8, and run through April 12.
