Thought revolutions are in many ways the most far-reaching. They affect our entire sense of legitimate authority, of the possible and impossible, of right and wrong, and of the potentials of human life.  The European enlightenment in many ways is the birthplace of modern thought of western society. This video and discussion class will examine the conceptual and cultural revolution of the Enlightenment, the birth of modern thought in the dilemmas, debates, and extraordinary works of the 17th- and 18th-century mind and how this affects who we are today.

Consider this, from Parker Palmer: “So what do we do in a circle of trust? We speak our own truth; we listen deceptively to the truth of others; we ask each other honest, open questions instead of giving counsel; and we offer each other the healing and empowering gifts of silence and laughter.” If you are interested in a stronger sense of purpose and integrity, an expanded capacity to be present for others, or more courage to live authentically, Circle of Trust might be just what you’re looking for. A circle of trust group meeting is based on the idea that if people get together in an environment marked by trust, honesty and caring, positive spiritual growth will result. The purpose of this group is to experience each other in an authentic, nurturing environment.

Circle of Trust, led by Bob Nelson, will meet on Thursday nights at 6:30 pm for nine weeks beginning Sept. 20th.

The Enneagram Journey

The Enneagram Journey

Why do you do the things you do? Feel your feelings so strongly? The Enneagram can help you understand both yourself and those around you in a new light.

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for personal and collective transformation. Stemming from the Greek words ennea (nine) and grammos (a written symbol), the nine-pointed Enneagram symbol represents nine distinct strategies for relating to the self, others and the world. Each Enneagram type has a different pattern of thinking, feeling and acting that arises from a deeper inner motivation or worldview.

Discovering your Enneagram type can provide deeper clarity into your motivations and ways of seeing the world, and, at the same time, give you an understanding of how differently others may see that same world. Participants will learn about nine different personality types and spend time reflecting on their own motivations and ways of being in order to identify and understand their particular type. In this class we’ll view DVDs featuring Enneagram Master Suzanne Stabile, and explore the material through exercises and discussions.

The Enneagram Journey, facilitated by Ellen Allen, will meet on Monday nights at 6:30 - 8:30 pm for eleven weeks beginning September 17th. The cost is $40 and class members receive a workbook.

Walk For Schools

Join us the day before school starts to show our support for our students, teachers, staff and parents. We are walking to three local schools and offering a blessing at each one:

"To pronounce a blessing on something is to see it from the divine perspective. To pronounce a blessing is to participate in God's own initiative. To pronounce a blessing is to share God's own audacity."

(Barbara Brown Taylor)

"Walk For Schools" Sunday Schedule

08:45 AM - Meet At Arapaho United Methodist Church for Doughnuts and Coffee
09:00 AM - Begin Walk
09:30 AM - Arrive at Arapaho Classical Magnet for Prayer/Liturgy
09:50 AM - Arrive at West Junior High for Prayer/Liturgy
10:10 AM - Arrive at Richardson High School for Prayer/Liturgy
10:45 AM - Arrive at Arapaho United Methodist Church for Water & Snacks
11:00 AM - Worship Service (includes Blessing Of The Backpacks)

FAQ about Walk to Schools

What time and where?
We'll gather at 9 am in our sanctuary and start our walk shortly thereafter. We've given ourselves plenty of time between stops. We'll arrive at Arapaho Classical Magnet at 9:30 am, West Junior at 9:50 am, and Richardson High School at 10:10 am.

What if I am not able to walk that day?
You are welcome to stay in the cool of the sanctuary and join us via livestream for the event. If you feel like you can walk the route to Richardson High School (our end destination) but not back, there will be shuttle rides available from Richardson High. You are also welcome to take your car and join us for prayer at our three stopping points (Arapaho Classical Magnet, West Junior High, and Richardson High School).

What should I wear and / or bring?
Wear clothes and shoes you are comfortable walking in and that are good for the hot Dallas weather. Our worship service at 11am is--as always--come as you are! Bring a bottle of water,

Why are we walking to these three schools and not others?
Very practically: they make a nice loop that we can easily walk! Also, they stand as representatives of each of our age-level schools (Arapaho Magnet = Elementary Schools, West Junior High = Junior Highs, Richardson High = High Schools).

Will this be a Christian-based prayer liturgy or will people of other faiths feel welcome?
The liturgy aims to be inclusive, so that people of all faith traditions will feel comfortable. The big idea that is we are gathering as a community to send light and love towards these communities and connect with the divine presence at each one, offering our words and visual presence of support.

Will my Sunday School class do this or will we still meet?
Whatever your class decides. Some classes may choose to still have class, while others may choose to participate in Walk for Schools. We encourage parents to bring their children along to walk the route if they are able; childcare will be available back at the church.

Can I invite my friends?
Please do! All are welcome!
