Why Join Adult Education at Brick Church?

The Christian life is a journey, and we never cease to travel, learn, and grow. Adult education offerings at The Brick Church are meant to help church members and friends on their spiritual journeys. We join in Adult Education to grow in faith in the God revealed in Jesus Christ, to understand the Bible and the Christian tradition, to apply our faith as we engage in conversation with the world, and to live fully and faithfully as individuals and with our neighbors. Come grow and learn.

Values and Voices: Speaking Out in Public Spheres

Sunday January 21

Sunday January 21, 2018 an interfaith panel will discuss American values post the 2016 presidential election. Values and Voices: Speaking Out in Public Spheres will bring together distinguished scholars from a diverse range of religious traditions who will speak to core American values after the last national election. Panel participants will be three outstanding scholars representing three different religious heritages. Dr. Deirdre Good is a Theologian in Residence at Trinity Wall Street and is a graduate of the University of St Andrews, Cambridge University, receiving her doctorate at Union Theological Seminary and Harvard University Divinity School. Rabbi Andrea Weiss is an Associate Professor of Bible at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. Hussein Rashid is the Founder of Islamicate, L3C, a consultancy focusing on religious literacy and cultural competency, teaches as a contingent faculty member and engages with various interfaith and community building projects in NYC. He has a BA in Middle Eastern Studies from Columbia, a Masters in Theological Studies and an MA and Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Cultures from Harvard University. Our panel participants spearheaded a project that issued, for the first 100 days of the new administration, 100 one-page letters, authored by participating scholars from different religious traditions, which were then sent to the President, Vice President, Cabinet Secretaries, and Members of the House and Senate. The authors of these 100  letters spoke to what they believe are core American values which have grounded our nation in the past and should guide us as we go forward. More information on their interfaith project can be found at www.valuesandvoices.com
