We believe an active and inquiring mind is an essential part of faith development, and that it is our God-given nature to ask questions and critically examine the world around us in all its mystery and complexity. We seek to encourage study, discussion and exploration as a part of our regular religious practice.
As a community rich in teachers and seekers, we explore various bodies of knowledge, traditions, and subjects with a focus on the teachings of Jesus and how we can live those teachings.
Offerings have included:
- Lunch and Learn, a weekly video session
- Journey Stories
- Book Studies
- Movie Viewings with Discussion
Working ecumenically with three other local churches, we bring a well-known writer or theologian to Ashland for a weekend of learning every other year. Past guests include: Nadia Bolz-Weber (2019), Matthew Fox (2017), Diana Butler Bass (2015), and Marcus Borg (2013).
