Lent Soup Supper & Book Study Begins March 8th!
“A People Called Episcopalians” is the book that will be studied and discussed at this year’s Lenten mid-week program. This concise booklet explores five main areas of Episcopal life: identity, authority, spirituality, temperament and polity. It offers a great introduction to the Episcopal way for newcomers and a refresher reading for those who have been brought up in the Episcopal tradition. The book is written by John H. Westerhoff, III, retired Professor of Theology and Christian Nurture at Duke Divinity School, and Sharon Ely Pearson, Christian Formation Specialist and editor for Church Publishing Incorporated.
Here’s the schedule:
1st Week, March 8: Chapter 1 & 2: Episcopal Identity
Week 2, March 15: Chapter 3: Episcopal Authority
3rd Week, March 22: Chapter 4: Episcopal Spirituality
4th Week March 29: Chapter 5: Episcopal Temperament
Last Week, April 5: Chapter 6: Episcopal Polity
Copies of the book are available on the Narthex table or from the Church Office.
Each week’s session will begin at 5:30pm with a soup and bread supper. Discussion will flow during the meal and end by 7pm. For choir members, rehearsals will begin at 7:15 during Lent. To sign-up to bring soup or bread, see Linda Scheerer. Join us for any or all of the sessions during this season of Lent.
