HUMC Mini- Series FAll 2018
Exploring Transformation through Inspired Literature
As we connect with and see ourselves in the story of one of the most inspiring novels of the 19th century, we will explore how transformation takes place – our own transformation, the one we are currently living out and that which is emerging in us.
The story Les Miserables by Victor Hugo published in 1862, originally intended as a religious book reconciling God’s attributes of justice and mercy, is also a profoundly moving story of one man’s transformation and how his life impacted others. It deals with some of the most universal, relevant tribulations of mankind. By identifying with the main protagonists of the story, using the Holy Bible and spiritual practices such the Examen, we will explore our own humanity – both light and shadow sides.
To receive more from this modern day parable study, it is not necessary but helpful to know or review the basic story and its characters. Here is a link to reading the abridged version of the story. The movie is found on Comcast and Netflix.
This four session mini-series will meet the third Sunday of the month on Oct. 21, Nov. 18, Dec. 16, 2018 and Jan. 20, 2019 at 9 a.m. in the prayer room. Hosted by Carmel Stabley, Pastor Keith Buckbee and Chris Mayfield, we will begin with opening devotions including music, readings and centering prayer, then move into discussion and spiritual practice.
