Adult Formation - Fall 2019

Join us in the Guild Rooms - Sundays, 9:15am-10:15am for presentation and discussion as we walk in The Way of Love

Special Adult Forum: Celebrate the Carillon!

This summer, we had the opportunity to read the cathedral through our architecture, windows, carvings, and organ—but there’s always more to learn!

As part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of our carillon, all are invited to come to the Great Hall at 9:15am on Sunday, September 8, as we learn what a carillon is, and a little bit about the history of our instrument.

 

Finding "us" in God's stories

Adult Formation returns to the Guild Rooms on Sundays, 9:15am-10:15am, beginning September 15. Over the course of this program year, we will continue our exploration of the theme “Faith, Hope, and Love,” an exploration of the beliefs, practices, and resources of our Episcopal and Anglican heritage as we walk in the Way of Love. We began this summer in taking a look at some of the details of our worship space, and how they create meaning for us. This Fall, we will be working with Scripture, with a goal of equipping participants with tools to approach our sacred texts with curiosity and confidence.

In September and part of October we will be working with texts from the Old Testament, with presentations and conversations thinking about God’s interaction with creation and the way we interact with God. Where can we find ourselves in God’s stories? Beginning mid-October and running through December, we will be participating in the diocesan-wide formation program following the work of Amy-Jill Levine in Short Stories by Jesus, exploring some of Jesus’ most well-known parables in the light of their original audience to better understand how we might interpret them today.

Join us most Sundays at 9:15am in the Guild Rooms for coffee and Christian formation as we explore Scripture and our relationship to it! All are welcome!
