All Souls Grow

 

When a person becomes a Christian by being baptized, she or he—or the godparents in the case of an infant—makes a promise to continue on a lifelong path of spiritual formation “into the image of Christ.” This undertaking includes education, but it goes far beyond that. Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others and all creation. 

Adult Formation

Adult Forum meets regularly on Sundays at 10 a.m. in the parish hall, except for occasional holiday pauses. We consider a wide range of topics including contemporary theological and social issues and matters of parish life. Dates and topics are announced in The Weekly.

Reading with the Rector
From time to time, Father Jadon asks us to read and discuss books as a parish. He reflects on them in his preaching and makes opportunities for us to discuss them together in special forums and/or mini-retreats.

Below, find the Reading with the Rector books we've discussed recently.

New Adult Forum Series:
Living Our Liturgy

Sundays at 10 a.m. beginning January 7

While we come as individuals from a variety of backgrounds and week-to-week ways of life, our liturgy binds us into one using words and practices that are many hundreds or thousands of years old. Some of these words and rituals we understand, some we do not, and some we can not! This winter and spring our 10 a.m. Adult Forums will focus on a wide range of topics and questions that will help open up the mysteries of the liturgy and give us opportunities to share our own questions and experiences. Appropriate both for those who are new to our traditions and those who are interested in deepening their understanding.  The first collection of forums will rely on the text Beyond Smells and Bells by Mark Galli. Those who are not able to participate in the forums are encouraged still to read the book. Several Saturday mini-retreats will also be offered over the next several months as another way to participate (details TBA).
