Brother Andrew hosts a weekly discussion/study group for progressive Christians at 4pm on Tuesdays. Sometimes we have a book to read and discuss, sometimes we watch a movie, or follow a video-based study. During Lent 2023, we will be discussing the material in Stephen Cottrell's book, "The Things He Carried: Meditations for Lent and Holy Week." This group is free and open to all, staff, students, and the local community, whatever your religious, secular, or spiritual identity.
