Making Better Care Partners

13-16 October 9-noon

$15 by September 15 or $20 after

A course for people who are giving or receiving care, and for those who do pastoral care or visiting, including nursing homes, and for those living or working with people with dementia. The emphasis is on the care partner relationship.


See through the Scriptures

19-23 October 10-noon

$20 by September 15 or $25 after

This course provides the basic framework needed to understand the sweep of the Bible’s narrative, and thus see how all the ‘jigsaw pieces’ of Scripture fit together.

A person can read the Bible and not really ‘get it,’ but this course adds that extra element of clarity, especially the history and culture of Jesus’ time and before.”   Class participant


The Parables of Jesus

17-23 October 7-9 p.m.

$15 by September 15 or $20 after

Jesus’ parables are timeless and profound. Yet each contains nuances of meaning that can be appreciated fully only when seen through ancient Middle Eastern eyes. With remarkable cultural insights from a Middle Eastern scholar, this course shows how Jesus’ audience would have understood 11 of his parables.



These courses will be delivered by the Rev. Rod Funk who is an active ELCA pastor from Ohio and has functioned within the Diocese of Algoma at the Bishop’s pleasure over the past 10 years, most recently serving as interim at St. John’s in North Bay.

Rod has health care training and 14 years’ experience as chaplain in health care settings. He has been in Christian ministry for 51 years.

The Crossways organization is delighted to have Rod use their materials for teaching purposes, to clarify and enhance the narrative which is God’s Holy Word.
