Family Table: Sept 29, Oct 13, Oct 27, Nov 10, 6:30-8:30 pm This fall, we're taking a break from our regular weekly formation series to host four gatherings. In the midst of a busy and uncertain time, we want to connect as a church family, create space to check in on how we're doing and care for each other. We'll start with a meal and then spend time in group spiritual direction, a practice of prayerfully listening to and for each other in the presence of Christ. We'll meet in St. Peter's Rectory unless otherwise noted. Choose one of the dates and RSVP to email@example.com. Contact Christine Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Coming Soon! "Episco-what?" with the Very Rev. Dr. Michael DeLashmutt on Oct 16, 23 and Nov 13, 11:30-12:30 after service Drawn to the Episcopal Church but don't really know what it's about? You know Michael as our Priest Associate on Sundays. During the week, he is the Acting Dean and President of the General Theological Seminary down the block. In this series, Michael will cover some of the basic foundations of our tradition, starting with What is Anglicanism? (Oct 16), Introduction to the Book of Common Prayer (Oct 23) and Sacraments & Liturgy (Nov 13).
Throughout the year, we host different series during the week focusing on building community, contemplative prayer and spiritual practices that help us recognize and respond to God's activity and presence in the world. In the past, we've delved into Howard Thurman, compline, the gospel of Luke, the prayer of examen and the integration of the body with our faith. During the summer, we take a break to have fun together. Stay tuned for future series!
