This study will consider the challenges of civic virtue using three concepts from Christian tradition – covenant, community, and the common good – and looking at issues related to the common good (such as the environment, the economy, security, and health). Lent is typically a time for deepening our spiritual devotion and commitments – how might this include growing in community outreach and social vision? Beyond volunteerism and community service, what is the relationship between personal faith and the public good? With the Michigan primary election happening during Lent and a national election happening later this year, how do we talk within our faith communities about politics? How does Christian faith challenge our individualism and invite us towards greater responsibility within our communities (local, national, global)? The goal of this class is to invite participants to think deeply about their role as American citizens and as global citizens, within the context of respectful, conversational community. Pastor Paul Simpson Duke will be facilitating this adult formation series.
