We invite you to open your mind and connect with what is deepest in your heart by joining us for study, conversation, reflection, and prayer.
Our classes are designed to be intellectually engaging and spiritually enriching to help you explore what you believe and grow in faith. In some classes you may consider the implications of religious faith for daily living or learn about the Bible and the basic themes of Reformed theology. In others you will experience Christian prayer practices or engage in discussion about a variety of compelling contemporary issues. Bring your curiosity and questions! You will not be told what to think but instead given the opportunity to process ideas with others.
Sunday Morning Discussion Group. 8:45 a.m. – Discussion of Book of Joy with the Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu. In these trying times, reading the text and doing the practices will help us become more focused and peaceful. Discussion led by the Rev. Dr. Paul MacMurray.
Reflective Bible Study. 9:25-9:50 a.m., Middleton Center. Lectio divina is a slow, contemplative praying of the scriptures. We set aside time just before Sunday communal worship to explore how the reading for that day intertwines with our concerns, relationships, hopes and aspirations.
The Politics of Advent. Sundays, December 2-16, 11:15 a.m., Witherspoon Parlor. Dr. Joshua Yoder leads this class looking at how each gospel tells the story of Jesus’ birth, as well as our traditional Advent season readings, and explores how the early church understood their relationship to the world.
The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series began in 1997 in conjunction with our congregation’s 125th anniversary. The forums were endowed by the Anna and Herbert H. Middleton, Sr. Fund of our church Foundation and have been offered as a service to the community at large. The forums are free and open to the public. The format is a 45-minute presentation followed by a time for questions.
