ONLINE ON WEDNESDAYS

“Where is God in Troubled Times?

April 8-April 22 (three weeks) 1:30-2:30 pm  ONLINE ON FACEBOOK LIVE, ST PETER'S FACEBOOK PAGE

Sometimes God seems silent.  Sometimes God seems distant.  Sometimes God seems unfair.  And we call out to him.   On Wednesday, April 8, 1:30-2:30 PM, we will be trying something a little different at St. Peter’s: a class via Facebook Live.  Our inability to meet physically in a classroom does not mean we can’t connect. Join the Reverend Dr. Marcia King as we examine God’s actions in the Bible and how we seek God as he seeks us, even in uncertain times.   NOTE: You will need to connect to the St Peter’s Facebook page to view this class.   If you can’t attend Wednesday at 1:30 PM, no worries; it will be recorded on the St Peter’s FB page and available to view later.   

"The Holy Spirit"

April 29-May 13, (three weeks) 1:30-2:30 PM ONLINE ON FACEBOOK LIVE, ST PETER' FACEBOOK PAGE

The Holy Spirit is often called the most misunderstood part of the Trinity. Who is the Holy Spirit?  What are the gifts and fruit of the Spirit? Join the Reverend Dr  Marcia King on Facebook Live for an introduction to the forgotten member of the Trinity.  

"English Spirituality: The Caroline Divines

April 29--June 3 (six weeks) 5:30-6:30 via Zoom.  Contact the Reverend Brian Alberti for more info at balberti@stpetersparish.org

English spirituality has always been marked by two things, scripture and prayer. Amid the religious and political upheaval of 16th century England, Queen Elizabeth I established a middle road, or what is called in Latin, a via media, between on the one hand puritan iconoclasm, and on the other hand, the authority of the Roman Catholic Church. In the wake of what is called the Elizabethan Settlement, after Queen Elizabeth had declared independence from Rome and established the prayer book, certain clergymen of various backgrounds set out to define English theology and worship. They are called the Caroline Divines. Who were these figures and what did they believe about scripture, worship, and prayer? How are their views reflected in the Episcopal Church today and in what ways might we differ from them now? Join the Rev. Brian Alberti for a six-week Zoom class to explore these questions and more. We will gather each Wednesday at 5:30 pm via Zoom beginning on April 29th. Interested persons may send an email to balberti@stpetersparish.org to receive a Zoom invitation.
