During this final year of our three-year journey, we will engage in five different series: three this fall, and two in the spring, that explore who we are, and the reason God gave each of us to help form our faith. Join us as we explore:
I. "Faith In" Series
Faith in Politics
Faith in Medicine
Faith in Business
Faith in Education
Faith in Law
II. Social Justice
Verna J. Dozier
III. Stages of Faith Development
3-week series led by The Rev. Mary Lessmann
The past two program years, we have engaged deeply in God’s Story and in Our Story. We read through the full narrative of the Bible (all ages!) and for our Adult Formation have walked through 2000 years of Church History and Theology. This final year of the “story” series explores the third leg of the Anglican Stool, Scripture, Tradition, and Reason.
Many of you will remember the popular advertisement campaign for the Episcopal Church and the motto, “Don’t check your brains at the door.” We believe in a reasonable faith, questions are welcome, and each of our experience, collected as Community, inform our understanding of God and the world.
During this time of physical distancing we plan to offer a video each week of our schedule. Should we have the opportunity to safely gather all together at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings, we will!
“My Story” begins with a five-week series on “Faith in… (politics, medicine, business, education, and law).” I think this first series will help all of us know how we can best live out our life of faith in our work and other settings. Many of these sessions will be led by our own parish family members. Following this is a thoughtful three-week series on traditional social justice issues. Next, the Rev. Mary Lessmann will lead an awesome three weeks on Stages of Faith Development.
During this year of “My Story” I encourage everyone to get involved in at least one small group. These discipleship groups help us to grow in our faith and action as followers of Jesus. I also want to encourage each of you to write your spiritual autobiography. What does your journey of faith look like? Who are the key characters (authors, people, place, etc.), what are your big questions for God? This exercise will bear much fruit and we will have several offerings to help you in this process throughout the year. May “Your Story” and “My Story” be blessed by God!
