MIDWEEK CLASSES

Covenant Social Justice Book Club– New Class beginning June 28th

Join the Covenant Social Justice Book Club as we discuss Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law. Widely heralded as a “masterful” (Washington Post) and “essential” (Slate) history of the modern American metropolis, The Color of Law offers one of the most forceful arguments ever published on how federal, state, and local governments gave rise to and reinforced neighborhood segregation. The Color of Law forces us to face the obligation to remedy our constitutional past. Join us starting June 28th @ 7 PM to explore this most essential read. Email [email protected] for more info. Email [email protected] for a Zoom Invitation.  The book assignment for the first session for The Color of Law will cover everything from the preface through chapter 4 (or up to page 77.)                                                                              

TUESDAY MORNING BOOK STUDY

NEW BOOK STUDY – Tuesday, June 21, 10:00am meeting at Covenant in the Upper Room – Join us as we delve into the “The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World!”  The Book Of Joy is the result of a 7-day meeting between the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, two of the world’s most influential spiritual leaders, during which they discussed one of life’s most important questions: how do we find joy despite suffering? This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye. We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy—from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.
