“Who Do You Say that I Am?”
This year during Lent, Fr. Eric will be offering a discussion class on Wednesday evenings in the parish hall.
We will explore Jesus, the Trinity, and what the Christian Tradition has to say about who God is and what that means for us humans.
For those who wish to read a book to support the class, we will be using a book called A Theology in Outline: Can These Bones Live? by the late theologian and pastor Robert W. Jenson https://www.amazon.com/Theology-Outline-These-Bones-Live/dp/0190214597.
The class will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the parish hall and we will end each evening with a brief Compline service from the Book of Common Prayer. Participants are encouraged to bring soup or salad for potluck supper.
We will have four class sessions:
February 21, February 28, March 14, and March 21.
(We will not hold classes the week of spring break, March 14 or Holy Week, March 28).
Please RSVP with Cathy in the church office.
