LEARN ABOUT OUR FAITH THROUGH NEW ONLINE COURSES BEGINNING SEPT 3RD! Our Province’s seminary, St. Joseph of Arimathea Anglican Theological College, will offer online lecture courses on weekday evenings for interested clergy and laity this fall.  As the seminary’s provost, the Most Rev. Robert Sherwood Morse, has often said, “our biggest enemy is ignorance.”  Any of these four courses promises to increase the depth of your knowledge in an important aspect of our faith and practice.  Each course meets once a week beginning the week of Sept 3rd and may be audited or taken for credit.  The courses are:  Philosophical Theology and Christology; Church History: From 1300 to the Present;  The Theology of the Old Testament;  A Brief Introduction to the Early Church Fathers.  For information, please see the flyer on the table at the back of the church. COFFEE HOUR SERVED ON THE PATIO  Today we resume serving coffee hour on the patio. At present, there are no new sign-ups for September through December.
