The Rector’s Forum: Ephesians (in summer recess)
The Rev. Jeffrey Miller
Parish Hall, 9:30 a.m.

Ephesians is not the longest or the weightiest of St. Paul’s letters, but many scholars regard it as the most elegant. All of the great doctrines of the Christian faith are proclaimed here “comprehensively, clearly, practically, and winsomely.” Ephesians, however, does more than merely inform; it equips. Of all the New Testament books, Ephesians may have the most to say to our twenty-first century, post-Christian world. Join the Rev. Jeffrey Miller as we continue our study of this ancient epistle that still speaks with power and relevance to our contemporary culture. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of the Bible.

Work, Rest, and the Art of Being Human (in summer recess)
For Young Adults (20s and 30s)
The Rev. Ryan Streett
Piano Room (Ministries Hall, 3rd Floor), 9:30 a.m.

This fall, the Rev. Ryan Streett will be offering a course for young adults based on John Mark Comer’s book Garden City: Work, Rest, and the Art of Being Human. This conversational-style class will give a fresh take on calling and purpose within our various vocations in the workplace or at home. We will take a look at God’s original intent for humanity and seek to find answers to questions like “Why are we here?” “What should we do about it?” “Does God care where I work?” “What about what I do with my free time or how much rest I get?” “Does He have a clear direction for me?” All young adults are invited to come and take part in this offering.

Silence, Rest, and Listening to God
Pringle Franklin
The Chapel, 9:30 a.m.
Year-round (check calendar for changes)

Join Pringle as she leads a class on centering prayer, a method of meditation used by Christians. Learn to practice silence before God and dwell deeply in His presence. The class pairs teaching with sessions in stillness, which allow the group to remain still and silent, entering into a state of contemplative prayer.
