Faith Programs for Adults

During the program year (Sept-June), we offer two ongoing programs for adults in addition to our special season learning opportunities.

Forgiveness: An Interfaith Approach to Opening the Heart Monday Eves., 

April 9, 23, and 30 6:30 ~ 8:00 PM at KCC

Forgiveness is central to the teachings of Jesus.  But there aren’t many details in the scriptures about how to forgive.  Learning to forgive ourselves and others, releasing the suffering, and softening the grudges can open our hearts to greater experiences of love and freedom, but how can we do that in a healthy way?
Led by Louise Jacobus, on these three evenings we will discuss:

  • The many benefits to forgiveness, but also many important questions
  • How forgiveness is embedded in the spiritual traditions of the world and what can we learn from other traditions

Puzzle Exchange at KCC

Do you like to do jigsaw puzzles? Do you ponder what to do with a puzzle when you finish? We have started a puzzle exchange in the KCC Adult Library where you bring one in and trade it for another that you have not done.  We have 500 -750 piece for that same range and 1000-1500 piece for that same range. If a piece is missing, just note it on the box.
