New Thursday Study!

Beginning this Thursday, November 6, we will begin a new study titled “Painting the Stars: Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith.”  This is a study of the communion of faith and science, exploring the promise of evolutionary Christian Spirituality. Rachel Held Evans said that it is risky to continue to evolve as a person – “Risk is harmonizing my conviction, my faith, my desire to follow Jesus Christ with what I see in the world, with what I observe, with what I’ve been taught growing up versus what I encounter as a young adult myself.”  Join us at 9:30 a.m. as we look at this week’s topic, “Toward Healing the Rift.”

Contemplative Group

Fr. RohrThe Contemplative Group will meet on both the first and third Wednesdays of November – November 6 and 20.  We will continue with our study of Fr. Richard Rohr’s “The Naked Now” starting the second talk of the series.  In this talk, Fr. Richard leads us to experience a new way to process reality, not knowing by thinking, but by encountering.  Join us at 10 a.m. on these two Wednesdays for a quiet time of meditation followed by a talk and discussion!

Adult Forum Tomorrow!

Living in the Bible Belt for almost half a century, I cannot tell you how many times I was asked “Are you saved?”  Being the flippant person I can be, I sometimes responded “From what?”  Most often I said that wasn’t my theology.  In our Adult Forum this week we will hear what Marcus Borg’s theology is on the topic of “Salvation”.  We’ll also discuss what each of our participants believe on this subject.  Join us in the Conference Room at 11:30 tomorrow and share your perspective!

An Episcopal Vision for Creation Care

 

An Episcopal Vision for Creation Care

(From the Episcopal Church Website)

As a whole church, we have promised to place the care of God’s Creation at the heart of our common life. Together, we have taken up church-wide action in order to safeguard the integrity of Creation and to sustain and renew the life of the Earth.

Below are goals and a vision for Care of Creation, developed by the Presiding Bishop’s Office and leaders of the Advisory Council on Stewardship of Creation and in alignment with actions by the 79th General Convention.

Goal #1 – LOVING

We will share stories of concern for the Earth and connect with others who care.

Goal #2 – LIBERATING

We will stand with those most vulnerable to environmental degradation and climate change.

Goal #3 – LIFE-GIVING

We will change our habits and choices to live more simply, humbly and gently on the Earth.
