We’ve been asking “What’s your story?” for a while…this fall we’re offering a couple of mini-classes and other group experiences to answer a slightly different question: What’s our story? Yours, mine, and ours. What’s our story, yesterday and today?
Here’s what’s on deck for October, November, and December:
Faith & Story: What kind of Anglican are you?
October 3, 7 pm
Curious? This fun and informative evening is not just for newcomers! Stop in to learn what it means to pray and worship the way we Episcopalians do. Refreshments will be served during this interactive mini-workshop.
This short class is for those of you who are new to the Episcopal Church and would like to know more about….just about anything!
Want to know about our history?
About what Episcopalians believe?
When do we stand and when do we kneel? Why?
What’s up with that candle in the sanctuary that never goes out?
And what about Mary?
Faith & Story: The Bible Story
November 7, 14, and 28, 7 pm
Feel at sea with the bible? Don’t know your beatitudes from your begats? Wish you could impress your friends (or at least your relatives) with your knowledge of the twelve apostles? Wondering why hardly anyone in the bible has a sense of humor? Wish you knew how to find stuff between those tattered covers? This short class won’t teach you everything you want to know, but it will give you a framework for the Great Stories, and provide a safe port in the biblical storm.
Faith & Story: Discipleship Stories
December 5 through March 20, 7 pm
Who are you? What’s your story? Who is God calling you to be? What does it mean to call oneself a “Christian”? Who are some other Christians we admire? If you want to explore these questions, this class is for you. This class is open to all, but is especially appropriate for those preparing for adult baptism, confirmation, reaffirmation of baptismal vows, or formal reception into the Episcopal Church.
