17319573_sI will present a workshop on four Tuesday evenings this fall, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, entitled “I Seem to Be a Verb:  An Introduction to Process / Relational Theology”.  The series begins on October 28 and continues through November 18.  The Church will provide child care for those who register prior to Sunday October 19.

Background:  During my final semester of divinity school I had the privilege of studying with Prof. John B. Cobb, Jr.  His course on Process Theology transformed my life and ministry.  His insights opened pathways to discover a compelling worldview that is consistent with my lived experiences.  In my 27 years of ministry since then, I have found that many Unitarian Universalists who were raised in traditional churches or synagogues have come to value Process / Relational theology as a compelling alternative – one that is closely congruent with our UU Principles and Purposes.  In recent years many Unitarian Universalist ministers, most notably Rev. Galen Guengerich (at All Souls Unitarian Church in New York) have built upon the insights of John Cobb and his colleagues at the Center for Process Studies (Claremont CA).  In this series we will draw from Rev. Guengerich’s perspectives as well.

You may sign up for the series, and for child care, by contacting Chris Schleuder in the People’s Church office:   office@peopleschurch.net   or  269-375-3262.    If you need child care, you must register by Sunday October 19.
