What is God Doing Here?

Explore with participants how centering local charity around Missio Dei and Imago Dei can radically alter the way we think and practice local outreach. The six-week course would utilize a praxis oriented approach to these themes; offering instruction, dialogue, in-class activities, and optional "homework" (things participants can try in between classes as material for theological reflection). 

Participants will leave with a greater understanding of how to discern what God is doing in their local community as well as ways to engage this work with a posture of dignified interdependence. Additionally, activities would be constructed such that FBCD would be able to measure the increasing community involvement of congregants and potentially join congregants in their reaching out to the community.

Yoga

Yoga

Jotholyn Mason sought out yoga in the late 90s to relieve stress and find deeper meaning in life. her very first Kundalini Yoga class is where her love for the practice became clear. For 10 years she has studied and trained in Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga with teachers from around the world. She offers intuitive flow classes that thread all of her yoga knowledge together and challenges the body and mind on the mat. We are drawn together through our individual and collective experiences that yoga and meditation deepens our Christian faith. Students have referred to Jotholyn's classes as "yoga therapy." Jotholyn likes to help her students elevate their consciousness by teaching them the tools of yoga and meditation. She teaches the value of maintaining a daily sadhana of gratitude and meditation.
