Adults

We believe that faith formation is for all ages and that we are called to a life of continued learning, curiosity, and growth. Most importantly, we do that learning together. While individual study is an important part of faith, our spiritual lives are enriched when we engage in this learning alongside one another, seeking the ways that God is speaking to us and helping us apply our faith to our everyday lives.

Steven Charleston is a retired Episcopal Bishop and academic who is also part of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. In the first half of his book Charleston takes us on a journey of what it means to be a spiritual seeker from the Native American viewpoint. He then takes a unique look at Christian biblical interpretation and theology from the perspective of Native American tradition seeing four specific experiences of Jesus as “vision quests”. This book can be purchased from Amazon as a paperback or kindle book. Please register at:https://augustana.churchcenter.com/registrations or contact Stacy Eichman-Cardwell at secardwell@augustana.com to register. A zoom invitation will be emailed to you one week prior to our discussion. This is an easy way for “snowbirds” to continue their spiritual education!
