Spiritual Disciplines - Lent 2013

 

There will be two opportunities each week in Lent to gather to explore the spiritual disciplines which have helped Christians become disciples of the Lord over the centuries and millennia.  Together we will reflect on the inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting and study and the corporate disciplines of confession and guidance. 


This course will be led by the Rev. Paul L. Minor


This course is part of a series on the Christian life we are calling the "School of Discipleship".

Praying in Color - A Lenten Retreat

Saturday, March 10, 2012

9:00 a.m. - Noon


Maybe you hunger to know God better. Maybe you love color. Maybe you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, a distractable or impatient soul, or a word-weary pray-er. Perhaps you struggle with a short attention span, a restless body, or a tendency to live in your head.  If so, then join us Saturday, March 10 for a half-day retreat on "Praying in Color."

 

In this Praying in Color workshop, participants will learn how to "pray in color" as a group through an intercessory prayer exercise. This is not about being an artist. It's about learning to pray in a visual, kinesthetic, and playful way. This is about sitting in the presence of the God who loves and delights in us.

Why Jesus?

A four-week Adult Education Series for Lent

Offered at three different times:

        *  Sundays at 9:00 a.m. (Feb. 26 - March 18 2012)
        *  Sundays at 11:30 a.m. (Feb. 26 - March 18 2012)
        *  Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. (March 1 - March 22 ~ as part of a Mid-week Lenten Holy Eucharist)

Culture is blurring the lines between different faiths. It is increasingly difficult for people to grasp how their faith in Jesus Christ is unique. In this four part video series, David Nasser addresses the tough questions that people have about Jesus and points them back to the scriptural truths about our Savior.

  • Video Session 1: Whats the Big Deal about Jesus?
  • Video Session 2: Was Jesus God or Just a Good Man?
  • Video Session 3: Were Jesus Miracles Just an Illusion?
  • Video Session 4: Is Jesus the Only Way to Heaven?

Test of Faith

4 Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:45 p.m.
Beginning Sept 29th*

Unpacking Faith and Science

  • Is Christianity in conflict with science?
  • How are the Big Bang and Creation related?
  • Does biological evolution rule out purpose?
  • What does neuroscience say about religion?

If these questions intrigue you, or you've wondered about how to understand the relationship between science and faith, this course is for you.

 

Using the award-winning Test of Faith resources, this four-week series offers insights, and discussion opportunities for scientists and non-scientists alike.

 

Led by All Saints parishioners Professor Ian Hutchinson and Dr Megan Talkington, the program includes documentary video of world-class scientists explaining their personal and professional views and relating these to Biblical teaching. There will be ample time for group discussion of the big ideas and of your own individual questions.

 

More information?  Ask Ian Hutchinson or Megan Talkington at Service.

Open to the public. Come for one or all sessions as you are able.

Stories from our Community

"Two years ago I went to my first Agape meal with my son, who was five at the time.  To my surprise, when it was time to pass the peace during the service, he greeted those near by, and then proceeded to greet others around the room, adults and children, known and unknown.  I realized then that my faith community here at All Saints', was also his community."
