Interrupting Silence Class
Sundays, March 18 & 25 and April 8 & 15 at 10:00am
Beginning on March 18, Rosemary Jones and Doug Poland will lead a series of four classes discussing Walter Brueggemann's new book, Interrupting Silence: God's Command to Speak Out. In this book, Brueggemann illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates readers to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice. If you have questions, please contact the church office at (608) 233-6297 or info@covenantmadison.org, or email Doug at douglaspoland@me.com

Creation Care at Covenant
Sundays, April 22 & 29 and May 6 at 10:00am
In this three-part class, Carrie Sanders and Steve Whayland will lead us through a study and discussion of how we can make more sustainable choices as individuals and as a church to steward creation in a way that increases wellbeing for all. Together, we will examine the intersections of environmental stewardship, economic transition, and social equity as we explore ways in which we can make positive, lasting action that is in harmony with God's expectation of creation care stewardship. We will also introduce the idea of becoming a PC(USA) Earthcare Congregation and begin some initial exploration as to what this might mean at Covenant. Two books informing the talks are: Just Sustainability by Julian Agyeman and Earthwise (3rd Edition) by Cal DeWitt.
