|Sunday Adult Education: This Sunday at 9:15 we continue the series ‘Reading Between the Lines’. The curriculum is tied to the Church year. Each Sunday focuses on one or more of the readings we hear in Sunday worship. The class is held in the parish hall. This Sunday’s reading from the Gospel of John 9:1-41. G. Yandell|
Lent Program with Dr. David Pacini 5:00 Wednesdays: David Pacini began his series on the Great Vigil in the parish hall. He will teach not only this Wednesday, March 15, but also on the 2 ensuing Wednesday evenings in Lent and on Wednesday in Holy Week. This is an intriguing series, all about the Great Vigil and its theology, its treatment over the centuries and its biblical background. His slides of works of art illuminate the scriptures read in the Great Vigil.
The Wednesday evening programs begin with coffee/tea and snacks before Dr. Pacini’s lectures, followed by Compline (a simple evening service). Any who wishes may stay after Compline to visit with Dr. Pacini and one another. (There will be no potluck meals on Wednesdays this Lent.) G. Yandell
The Tia Chi Class does not meet this Saturday, March 18.
