Easter Forum

Led by The Rev. Dr. David Davidson-Methot During the Sundays in May (5 of them) we will be reading and discussing the book, “Jesus, Interrupted” by Bart Ehrman. In a nutshell, it is a review of New Testament scholarship (questions like who wrote the various books in the NT, how are they similar and how are they different, and what about the other writings of the same time that weren’t included in the NT, and why? that kind of thing).…

Group Spiritual Direction

Meeting Monthly What is Spiritual Direction? First, let’s say what it is not. It is not one person directing another on their spiritual journey. It is not one person trying to impose his or her own way onto another traveler.

It’s like riding “shotgun” for a friend…

Use of the Common Cup

Theologically, it speaks to our oneness; to our common faith and access to this faith through the sacrifice of Jesus. Paul writes of this to the Ephesians, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were…
