One Book – One Church
Our Adult Education Council has set a priority to help the congregation learn more about the theology, practices and experiences of our interfaith neighbors. Throughout the year we will study together, welcome community leaders and local experts, and engage in interfaith conversations. A highlight of this year’s focus will be our One Book/One Church activities. Our 2017 book selection is Eboo Patel's Acts of Faith: The story of an American Muslim, the Struggle for the Soul of a Generation. Books are available in the Court of the Ministries Center for the reduced price of $5.00.
The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series began in 1997 in conjunction with our congregation’s 125th anniversary. The forums were endowed by the Anna and Herbert H. Middleton, Sr. Fund of our church Foundation and have been offered as a service to the community at large. More than 50 guests have helped us to gain fresh perspectives on dilemmas we face and see new options for ways to move forward.
The forums, which are free and open to the public, usually take place on a weeknight at 7:30 p.m. in our Sanctuary. The format is a 45-minute presentation followed by a time for questions. For more information, contact Elena Perri.
The Theologian-In-Residence program is supported by the Theologian-in-Residence Fund in the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Foundation in honor of the Rev. Dr. David B. and Ruth Watermulder.
