Thinking about faith on the road
This four-week course seeks spiritual inspirations as illuminating stories and lessons from the road. We'll read some travel narratives in the Book of Acts, alongside ancient and contemporary writings on travel. Spiritual journey will be juxtaposed with travel along our way to find and deepen reflections on faith, openness, vulnerability, and growth. Each class will include activities of sharing stories and logging experiences.
