Meditation class-2014Adult religious education can be as narrow as "a study of Psalm 23" or as broad as "overcoming depression."

It can be spiritual or secular, aimed at the earth or aimed at the heart.

This year we have worked to add a diverse program of adult education sessions to our religious education studies. We have begun a weekly meditation group.
