CLASS IN ADVENT ON THE INCARNATION, WEDNESDAYS, NOV. 30th – Dec. 21
The text for this class is St. Athanasius’ monumental work, “The Incarnation of the Word of God.” Here we have a positive summary of the faith, written by an apologist heavyweight both of his own era of the 300’s AD and that of our own. This class is a wonderful way to make good on the call of Advent in preparing to welcome anew the Incarnate Lord into our lives strengthening our understanding of the “faith once delivered.” The concluding class of the series is next Wednesday, December 21 at 7:00 pm.

BIBLICAL REFLECTIONS, A DISCUSSION GROUP, LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT: This discussion group meets each Sunday, 9:15 – 10:15 am in the middle classroom with Ann Whitfield as facilitator. Please bring a Bible (any version) and perhaps a notebook a notebook in order to keep track of what the Spirit is saying. Also please bring a folding chair from one of the other classrooms. Men and women are invited. Just come when you are able.
