February 25: Looking at II Corinthians Join The Rev. Mark Stanley to explore this powerful letter in which Saint Paul gives both practical and spiritual insights. Paul also describes his personal struggles as well as a mystical experience he has had. Come learn about this important biblical book – no background needed!
March 4: Lenten Soul Work The Rev. Mary Luck Stanley will facilitate a session when we will do some work on ourselves, reflecting on our lives in the light of the Gospel promise that through Christ, all things are made new. What do we need to let go of, and what might we embrace that will lead us to new life, through the grace of God.
March 11: Sin and Redemption Easter is the story of redemption from sin. Lent is a time when Christians are encouraged to consider their sinfulness in order to understand and appreciate more fully redemption from sin. But what is sin? Activity? A state of being? A frame of mind? Let’s consider some possible answers for their plausibility and utility in helping us celebrate the Easter gift. Our conversation will be led by The Rev. Dr. Chris Dreisbach.
March 18: Questions of Faith Bring your doubts and your nagging faith questions, and join The Reverends Mark and Mary Stanley for a lively conversation about the spectrum of beliefs in the Episcopal Church. Is there some part of the tradition that has never made sense to you? Let’s talk about that, and more.
March 25: Thy Will Be Done. How do we discern God’s will? We are faced with decisions every day. How do we know what God wants us to do? Discerning God’s will is more an art than a science. The Rev. Mark Stanley will share some tools that might help us to discover God’s will.
April 1: No Forum because it is Easter Sunday!
