Topic for 2023: Lord, teach us to pray
Through June 4, 2023, with Theologian in Residence, Prof. Randall Zachman will explore this question. We will look at the understanding of the meaning and practice of prayer from the early church to the modern era, by examining selections on prayer from various theologians such as Origen, Gregory of Nyssa, and the desert Mothers, as well as Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, and Teresa of Avila, in order to inform our own understanding and practice of prayer.

2021 Weekday Lenten Forum Series

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.

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?
2019 Summer Forum Series
In this series, Fr. Ron Jaynes 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.
