Dates to Remember & Links to RSVP

Dear friends in Christ,

Fr. Sean launched a new sermon series on 1st Corinthians this past Sunday, and we will continue in that book through the beginning of Advent. This would be a good time to focus on 1 Corinthians in your own devotional reading. If you do, remember that the city of Corinth was wealthy, and its citizens were known for their arrogance and immorality. The church at Corinth struggled to remain true to the gospel in that context, so the letter has much to teach those of us who live in an equally arrogant and immoral culture.

Over and over again, Paul encourages the Corinthian church to consider the cross and its far-reaching implications for those called to follow Jesus Christ. In 1 Corinthians 1:18, Paul writes that "the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." In the months ahead, we will consider some of what it means to say that the cross of Christ is the power of God - a power accessible to those of us who are being saved.

And don't forget, our season of catechesis is quickly approaching. On Sunday, September 29th we will begin meeting at 9:00 am before worship and continue for 12 weeks. Our teaching schedule will be based on a book titled Confessing the Faith: Anglican Doctrine. If you plan to participate in catechesis, please click the following link where you can order the book if you wish, and RSVP: Catechesis Sign-Up Form.

Grace & Peace,
Bryan+ and Sean+

For All the Saints: Hannah More, Renewer of Society and Founder of Sunday Schools
Early Life On September 7th, Anglicans remember the life of Hannah More. Born in Bristol in 1745, Hannah lived in western England most of her life. Because Hannah lived during both the American and French Revolutions, her time was one of great social unrest. While she taught at a school founded by her father in her young adulthood, she eventually …
