Non-denominational GriefShare resumes

GriefShare will meet at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Red Wing, at 7 p.m. Mondays from Sept. 15 through Dec. 1. People who have lost loved ones of their own lead the non-denominational seminar and grief support group.

For more information, call Tina at 651-301-1548 or Suzy at 507-398-3729.

Bonhoeffer Society meetings start again

The Bonhoeffer Society of Red Wing will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday Sept. 13 at Christ Episcopal Church.

Open to anyone, the group meets September through May to discuss Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life and writings. Michael Hayes will open the season by introducing Bonhoeffer's early ideas about ethics.

Bonhoeffer was one of the first Germans to recognize and resist Adolph Hitler’s capacity for evil. The Nazis hanged Bonhoeffer just before the end of World War II.

By studying his historical and theological insights, people can gain a better understanding of America’s current political climate dominated by extremist views, society organizers said.
