A significant part of being in a Christian community is being involved with ministry. Each of us is called to ministry by God for the benefit of community – both ours and those outside our parish. Listening Hearts is an extraordinary exploration into the meaning and discernment of ministry within community. She has been involved in this ministry and this particular of expression of ministry discernment for several years. Please speak with her for further information, and watch the newsletter for particulars on the class. This class will begin in January.
Anglicanism has its origins with the arrival of the Good News of Jesus Christ during the early centuries of the Christian Era. It evolved out the life and presence of the Romans in Britain; and the Irish contributed their wisdom and understanding. The Desert Fathers and Mothers and Orthodox theology influence English monasticism; and the Latin Church arrived in the last years of the seventh century. The English Reformation affirmed the Catholic heritage, welcomed the restoration of the Bible to a central position, and reached back to the Early Church Fathers for a theological grounding. Anglicanism has an incredible rich heritage in its theology, spirituality, and polity. It seeks to follow that middle way … via media … that brings together the best of the several traditions within the Church Universal. Anglicanism is, more than anything else, a way of seeing the world and a way of thinking. This course will look at such areas as worship, history, spirituality and prayer, the Bible, morals and ethics from the distinct perspective of Anglicanism. Please speak with Father Murdock or Father Lawrence if you wish more information. This class meets in the spring after Easter.
