With this blog, we are hoping to bring more and more Bible-based and faith-based learning opportunities to you — wherever you are, whenever you want to connect with God and with our Mount Olivet congregation.

 We invite you to visit our Adult Learning Blog often.  We plan to offer a glimpse into events and classes at our church and our affiliates.  We aim to offer inspiration for your faith journey and your spiritual practices.  We encourage you to share your thoughts, questions, ideas, and inspirations by adding your comments to the conversation. 

 May this be an extension of our church, a space and place where we can plug into adult learning at Mount Olivet, connect with our pastors and brothers and sisters in Christ, and rejuvenate our spirits and souls.


Posting the Passion of Christ | Station 9 | Jesus promises paradise to the thief

Posted by on April 15, 2014 @ 2:11 PM

Lord, you are most holy. You are filling up the emptiness I ignore with your unbounded love. Your promise of eternity is in these faces of those here at the retreat center, thoughtful and deep. Your promise is in the quiet strains of Kraig's beautiful music on this sun-spilled crisp day. You sent your son for this, to die to this world so that we may live eternally with you in yours. 

Jesus, what gift it is to know that you do and will remember me, from here until heaven. 

Posting the Passion of Christ | Station 6 | Simon helps Jesus

Posted by on April 15, 2014 @ 1:31 PM

Pastor Knutson shared this inspiration:

We might wish we could have been there to help Simon, to help Jesus.  We can now.  God said, love one another as you love me.  

Lord, help me to carry your cross.  Help me to lift the burdens of others, by loving them as you love me.
