Harry Potter and Christian Spirituality
Led by Dannielle Tomminio
In the tradition of J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling explores spiritual and moral themes in her popular Harry Potter series. On Sunday, November 6th, Danielle Tumminio leads us in worship, and will join us for the Adult Education hour to talk about the intersection of the Christian faith with the Harry Potter series. “My hypothesis,” Tumminio writes in her book God and Harry Potter at Yale: Teaching Faith and Fantasy Fiction in an Ivy League Classroom, “is that the series does resonate with the Christian worldview, but often these resonances occur in unexpected ways.”

Nurturing a Grateful Heart
Prayers of thankfulness help us notice God’s abundant gifts. Gratitude is a wonderful companion to other forms of prayer. In thanking God, we grow closer in intimacy with God. Come explore the role of thankfulness in the Christian life and learn about habits we can develop to nurture a grateful heart.
