Lenten Suppers, Studies & Services 2016
Five Wednesdays in Lent (Feb. 17, 24, March 2, 9 & 16)
Our series of Lenten Supper, Studies and Services will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 6:30 pm in the Parish House.
For the Adults, the Rector will offer a class entitled, “Visions of Heaven, Visions of Hell,” while our Seminarian will lead a class with the title, "Reclaiming the Book of Revelation."
Our teens and pre-teens will be doing a study on "God's Compassion in Me," and the younger children an exploration of the Beatitudes. Childcare is available for ages three and under during the class time.
The evenings begin with a potluck supper (6:30 - 7:05 pm), followed by the studies (7:10 - 7:50 pm) and capped off by a worship service featuring the Celtic Prayers and Music.
The weekly event is free, but bring along your favorite entree, salad or dessert to share!
Visions of Heaven, Visions of Hell. Led by Donald D. Binder, Rector. In this class, we will explore several
portrayals of heaven and hell in the literary and artistic works of such luminaries as Dante,
Milton, Rodin, Bunyan, and C. S. Lewis. The purpose of the class is not only to gain insights into
two potential existences in eternity, but also to discern the ways humanity currently
creates or fosters its own antechambers to heaven and hell on earth.
Reclaiming The Book of Revelation. Led by James Rickenbaker, Seminarian. As a prophesy of the end times, The Book of Revelation has been a cryptic source of anxiety for Christians almost since its inception.
In this class, we will review a number of these interpretations, but ultimately settle upon a vision of
hope and redemption for those who put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
