Sunday Morning Forums

Via Zoom

Weekday Lenten Forum Series

Facilitated by Tim Mackey, all are invited into a time of reflection, imagination and connection to the times of old through the literature of John Watson's Companions of the Sorrowful Way.

Watson explores the story of biblical characters and how they walked the "sorrowful way" with Jesus Christ. The book highlights that Jesus meets us at every stage of our lives. From kingdoms to farmlands, from the rich to the poor and marginalized, Christ walks with us.

2020 Summer Forum Series

Bible Women, All their words and why they matter

Women of the Bible have been trapped in dry and dusty literary caskets for centuries. While a few women, such as Mary, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Mary Magdalene, are familiar, many of the women who speak in the Bible have long been ignored. Yet their words are part of God's Word—the Bible—for a reason. Through these women, God spoke, intervened, changed, illustrated, and proclaimed the story of redemption. What were the broad themes among those who spoke? What might their words mean for us today? How might their actions increase our faith?


Forum Hour at Saint James

One of our primary opportunities for spiritual growth occurs in our adult forums. Every Sunday at 9:30 AM in the Parish House Forum Room, we engage different topics and facilitators as we seek to deepen our knowledge of God. We continue to explore many different topics relevant to our faith and forums are led by clergy and lay leaders.

Walk in Love

2019 Summer Forum Series

Last summer, Fr. Ron took us on a refreshing walk through The Book of Common Prayer. As an added tool, he used the newly published and widely acclaimed book Walk in Love. Described as one the most comprehensive guides to the Episcopal faith and the prayer book ever written, the book by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe, explains what it means to worship and live out a Christian life as an Episcopalian.
