St. John’s Episcopal Church - Sunday, June 9, 2019

 

From Fr. Ray+

The Adult Sunday School class began their new class called Discussing Mere Christianity last Sunday.

The first purpose of this video study is to explore the positive ideas that C.S. Lewis has so eloquently written about in Mere Christianity for those who already call themselves Christian.  The second purpose is to explain in an engaging, winsome and non-threatening way the basic tenets of the Christian faith as illustrated by C.S. Lewis to those who do not claim to be Christian.  This study aims to fulfill the vision of C.S. Lewis of reaching people from all faith backgrounds.

Sessions include:

  • Our Sense of Right and Wrong
  • What's Behind Our Sense of Right and Wrong
  • The Rival Conceptions of God
  • Free Will and the Shocking Alternative
  • Christian Behavior and the Great Sin of Pride
  • The Christian Virtue of Hope
  • God in Three Persons
  • Counting the Cost

 

If anyone is interested in doing this same study during the week, please let me know.   I will be happy to lead a mid-week group.

 

Thanks, Fr. Ray +

 

Jackie, Nolan, Arwen and Aiden Dean just moved into their new College Street home. Jackie, Arwen and Aiden are all sick with a virus and Nolan left for Texas last Sunday to see his mom who just had an intensive cancer treatment.  They do not have their new kitchen finished so cooking is a challenge although they do have a microwave and fridge.

Please pray for Jackie, Arwen and Aiden to heal quickly and please pray for Nolan's mom, Margaret, that the cancer treatment works and for 100% healing.

If you like to sign up to help out the Dean’s with a meal, please go to the following link.
