Forums take place on Sunday mornings at 9:40 AM from September to May. All are welcome to attend these learning opportunities.
This year, we will often focus on two related aspects of learning in our faith–being real and sensing the Word. Being real means we learn best when something touches our real life–and when we are able to be real with our doubts and questions as well as our values and abilities. Sensing the Word may need a little more description. We believe that God's Word not only has become incarnate in Jesus, but is in-the-flesh of our lives now, too. So we can use all our senses to experience God's living Word. Sensing the Word can happen not only through reading with our eyes or listening with our ears, but by walking, seeingartwork, tasting the grace of a good meal, or the back-and-forth of conversation. Don't limit the possibilities! We will look at how we can sense the Word in all kinds of ways.

October 22 Join us for a Recovery Sunday forum led by Joy Hensel, a licensed alcohol and drug counselor, as she shares some resources for recovery and how our lives of faith walk alongside stories of recovery.
October 29 Sensing the Word The Spirituality of Brokenness. None of us like the feelings of brokenness, but we all go through those times. How do we care for each other in those moments? How do we find strength through them?

Women's Fall Luncheon
Janet Karvonen-Montgomery will be speaking at the Women's Fall Luncheon on Saturday, November 4 at 12:00–2:00 pm.
Please join us in welcoming Janet Karvonen-Montgomery to St. Timothy as she shares her faith journey, from basketball to ordination. Janet says: "Nearly everything I have gone through in life has prepared me for ministry. Public speaking, starting a business and teaching at basketball camp have all helped me learn skills over the years… My faith grew both through marriage and having children–and through membership at St. Timothy Lutheran Church and Incarnation Lutheran Church in Shoreview.
Women and girls of all ages are invited to this inspirational event. Child care is available. The cost is $10. Be sure to invite a friend or two.
St. Timothy sends out weekly emails with information about upcoming events as well as notes about what has been happening lately. If you would like to receive this email, please email your request to the office or call the office. Thanks!
