Are you looking for community? You will find it here. Whether you find it through book discussion, singing, in thoughtful discussion over a casual drink, studying scripture or more, there is a small group for everyone.
August 16, 4 p.m. on Zoom In our years of gathering every month to discuss various forms on theology, we have talked about theology that starts with ideas, starts with creation as well as those that fall under the umbrella of “Liberation Theology” that always starts with the lived experience of people. One form of this is Womanist Theology that begins with the experience of African American Women, and from their lived experience reveals wisdom and truth of God, faith and creation. Join us on Zoom (same link as worship), grab a drink and be a part of our casual but engaged time together!
Fiction: Our discussion from July was postponed. We will discuss the novel Jayber Crow by the Poet Wendell Berry on Sunday, August 30. If you are ready for a new book, our September book will be American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins.
Non-Fiction: We will continue our book discussion of Debby Irving’s “Waking Up White.” We will gather on Zoom at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 9 as we discuss Part II of the book and again on August 23 as we discuss Part III.

For 10 years the Kirk has been living our faith through caring for our shared earth, installing solar panels in 2007, making building decisions based on their environmental impact and educating ourselves on earth stewardship. From brick and mortar decisions to educational classes on composting, and this year's effort to be attentive to our water use while providing water filtration systems to our partner community in Fondwa, Haiti, this team guides our church to honor God's creation as an act of love.

To keep us connected but safe, we will offer in person gatherings outdoors at the Kirk on Saturday, August 8 and August 29 at 10 a.m. If you plan to come you must RSVP to Selena at Selena@kirkofbonniebrae.org. All in attendance must bring their own chairs and drinks, and wear masks. We will distance ourselves but enjoy an opportunity to be together.
