“Move for Stillness” Yoga

Join us on Wednesday nights from 6-7 during Wednesday Night Live! Instructor: Alli (Costello) Newsom. To deal with debilitating running injuries, Alli started practicing yoga about 10 years ago. It helped her regain an active lifestyle. Passing on the healing that yoga provided became her passion and her reason for teaching. She received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification from Bhava Yoga in 2015. Classes will have a theme each week. We will discuss fundamentals and use them in a guided sequence. Alli encourages an interactive class, where laughter & community affirmation is the goal. Props and plenty of modification will be offered. Bring a yoga mat if you have one, and clothes that allow for movement. Yogis: Sometimes a “beginner’s mind” can completely change your practice. Class is free, but a love offering will be taken each week that will go toward Hurricane Harvey relief. Contact: allijcostello@gmail.com.

Opening UP the Bible

How to get beyond its old bloody weirdness. There are many of us there are put-off by some of the stories we read in God’s word. The Bible is often criticized for propagating a world view that is outdated, violent, and primitive. What, as people of faith, do we do with that? Let’s explore this and other themes as we dig into the Bible together this Fall. There is a whole progressive counter narrative happening among even some of the most challenging passages I hope you discover. This is going to be a fun adventure for first time or long time Bible readers. Join us Every Wednesday night this Fall from 6:00-7:00 in Room 260. Bring your Bibles.
