St. John's Adult Formation

Wednesday, October 27 @ 7pm IN PERSON and via Zoom

Tamara Kolton grew up in a Detroit-based humanist Jewish congregation “without God” and was mentored by a radical and renowned rabbi. Ultimately, she became his successor and the senior rabbi. She felt an intense spiritual yearning to discover God and in searching for “Him”, she found “Her.” Today, Rabbi Kolton is most passionate about the Feminine Divine and in sharing that energy with a world in desperate need of feminine truth, light and power. She asks us to see Eve, of the Bible, as a heroine and an unabashed powerhouse of beauty and bravery. She asks us to see ourselves that way, too. Rabbi Kolton is the author of Oranges for Eve: My Brave, Badass Journey to the Feminine Divine.

St. John's Adult Formation

Wednesday, November 3 @ 7pm via Zoom

Rituals are symbolic activities that help us, together with our families and friends, express our deepest thoughts and feelings about life’s most important events: births, baptisms, graduations, weddings, and other momentous events.

We put all of ourselves into the planning of them. In this session, we will also consider why and how it can be meaningful and spiritually fulfilling to plan for our burials. Why might one want to be buried or cremated? What is important to you to be said, sung, remembered at your funeral or memorial service? What are Episcopal traditions, liturgies and symbols that you would like to more fully understand and incorporate?

Presented by the Rev. Beth Taylor - bring your questions!
