A 6 week long course with The Rev. Bruce Bramlett.
Uncovering and Challenging a History We Thought We Knew: The Development of Rabbinic Judaism and Classical Christianity, 586 B.C.E. to 325 C.E. This six-week class will explore the long developmental trajectory of Rabbinic Judaism and Classical Christianity through the critical period of western history from 586 B.C.E. to 325 C.E. Beginning with the traumatic, decisive events of exile in Babylon where what we call “Judaism” began, we will trace the development of Jewish tradition and self-consciousness through its encounter, accommodation, and resistance to the Hellenistic world.
This course will be held on Tuesdays from 11:30-1:00 on the following dates: September 13, 20,27 and October 4,11,18.
Class will be held in Stevenson Hall at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 9000 Sonoma Highway in Kenwood, California.

Announcement #3: From our friends at St. Ignatius Parish in San Francisco:
Encountering Vatican II
IN-PERSON & LIVESTREAMED
Living Into the Council with Francis
Check the series out using this link:
When Pope Francis called for a Synod on Synodality, late in 2021, he was continuing a process begun in the Second Vatican Council—that revolutionary meeting of bishops from around the world, which turned the altar towards the people and the Church towards the world. This fall, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the convening of Vatican II, St. Ignatius Parish will host a six-part series inviting all of us to encounter this Council and its continuing effects for the Catholic community.
To Francis, who has proclaimed “the Council is the Magisterium of the Church,” the call of Vatican II is a mandate to the whole People of God to engage the world and the Church with a new heart: a heart filled with hope and promise, a heart that can embrace the world with the mercy of God. In this series, scholars from across the country will come to St. Ignatius Church, inviting us to encounter the principal documents of the Council (i.e., the four major “Constitutions” below) in a new way, and calling us to see how these documents point us towards the Church that we, as God’s People, can create.
October 6, 20226 In this first session, Michael Sean Winter from the National Catholic Reporter opens the series with an overview of the context in which Vatican II took place, and why it matters today.
October 13, 2022 13 In this session, Rita Ferrone, author of Liturgy: Sacrosanctum Concilium, will examine the Constitution on Sacred Liturgy
November 3, 2022
In this session, Gina Hens-Piazza, professor of Old Testament Studies at the Jesuit School of Theology, will discuss the Constitution on Sacred Scripture.
Thursday, November 17, 2022:
Race, Identity, and the Power of Story
Sponsored by North Bay Organizing Project's Religious Leaders' Caucus
Saturday, September 17th
Christ Church United Methodist
1717 Yulupa Ave., Santa Rosa, CA
As people of faith and goodwill, we are called to dismantle racism. But we often stick to book studies and videos, because we feel awkward with new people, or we're afraid that we'll mess up. While our feelings are valid, we can learn to show up in our community better!
Join us for a time of personal reflection, group discussion, and learning through story-telling, led by facilitators from Uncommon Grace. Dinner, additional relationship building, and a solidarity action will follow the workshop.
