Life & Faith
April 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
How and when do you tell people at church that you are afraid?
That’s the proposed topic for our April Life & Faith gathering, April 5, 7PM, on Zoom.
Fear is one of the things that can cause us to stray into behaviors that aren’t helpful or loving. Those angels who told people “Be not afraid” were onto something, but letting go of fear is easier said than done. Theoretically, our faith community is ready to journey with us through times of fear, but do we tell them when we’re afraid? And, if we do, do we know how to articulate what would be helpful? Likewise, if someone at CUCC were to tell you they were feeling fearful, would we know how to respond?
What is Life & Faith?
Sometimes a change of location and a libation improve the conversation.
Life & Faith began in a local brewery and hopes to return there one day when the COVID-19 numbers drop. Questions for discussion arise from the group as each of us tries to figure out how to put into practice what we believe. We talk about family, work, community. We don’t always agree; we do laugh together. If no one has a question that night, Jane Smith brings a back up question to start the discussion.
What is said at Life & Faith stays at Life & Faith! We seek to be a brave place for one another.
This is a fluid group and friends are welcome – just drop in! We meet on 1st Tuesdays, 7-8PM, currently on Zoom. When gathering at a pub, discussion starts at 7PM, so arrive by 6:30 if you want to order food (each person covers their own purchases). We try to model God’s generosity by tipping well, whether we order water or a full meal. The discussion wraps up at 8PM.
How can I attend?
Jane Smith sends a monthly topic reminder which includes the Zoom link or real life location; to be added to that email, contact her at email@example.com. The topic also appears in the CUCC News & Events the week before, and the Zoom link in the CUCC Online Events email.
