October 5: Our Neighbor’s Faiths
This class begins on September 28 with Holy Spirit member Ed Smith leading a two week study of the major religious traditions of the world. Based on a humanities course he teaches, we will begin to discuss how sacred practices developed, and how we talk to people about what God means to us. There is much to learn so this class will be repeated two more weeks in the winter term.
October 12 and 19: Lasting Plans – Eternal Care
Pastor Eshbach and Allison Carlson will lead this class about how to make plans and provide direction for your loved ones at the time of your death. This class will include some practical background about the Lutheran Christian funeral liturgy, as well as reminding you of decisions you can make now to assist your family later.
October 26: All Hallows’ Eve Party
During the Middle Ages on All Hallows Eve (October 31) people would dress up as one of the dear departed saints of the church. On the Sunday before Reformation Day and All Saints Day, we gather together with the children’s classes for a similar, yet contemporary costume party. Who will come dressed as Martin and Katie Luther?
