The Nine Arts of Spiritual Conversations (Satterlee Hall): This series is designed to help you learn to talk with anyone about God and the life of faith!  Studies show that while religious affiliation may be declining, people still seek out and desire spiritual connections and experiences of the divine. The members of the Church should be equipped to engage people where they are, drawing them into community and an experience with God in Christ.  This series is organized around the “nine arts of spiritual conversations” that make it possible to engage in open and honest spiritual conversations…without awkwardness! Jesus did this effectively, and when we learn from him, so can we. These nine practices are skills we can learn that will naturally deepen connections with others. When spiritual conversations become an everyday reality, you will have a front-row seat as God changes people’s lives.

Choral Evensong (Cathedral): On October 2 and October 30, we will take a break from our usual mid-week program to experience Choral Evensong, a variation on the service of Evensong.  Choral Vespers will be held in the cathedral.

Alpha (Stirling Room): Alpha is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment; it’s a ten-week course that meets in churches, coffee shops, prisons, and homes worldwide.  Alpha is a safe place to explore life’s biggest questions, and creates an environment of hospitality in which people who might not call themselves Christians can develop a relationship with Jesus.  No two Alphas are the same, but they all have three key things in common: food, an Alpha talk, and good conversation.  Each talk looks at a different question about Christianity; these talks encourage discussion about how we can live the life of faith, how God guides us, how we can be filled with the Holy Spirit, and other similar themes.  The most important part of Alpha is that it provides opportunities to share thoughts on spiritual topics in an honest and friendly small-group environment: there’s no obligation to say anything, and there’s nothing one can’t say (seriously).

Spiritual Life for Women

From Wednesday, September 4, through Wednesday, December 11, this group will be reading Beth Moore’s study of the book of James, Mercy Triumphs.  The group meets from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m. each week, and convenes at various home locations.  For more information (and to order a copy of Moore’s book), contact Clark Lee (clarkblee@yahoo.com).

The Ark Group for Women

Fall & Spring Wednesdays, 10:00 - 11:30 am in the Stirling Room:
The Ark group is active during the fall and spring seasons, and meets in the Stirling Room from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m. every Wednesday.  This group is dedicated to fostering deep conversations and open dialogue about the life of faith.  During the fall of 2019, the group will be studying a DVD curriculum titled “ProFuture Faith: the Prodigal Species Comes Home.”  This series features the work of Reverend Michael Dowd, a Church of Christ minister, author, and TEDx presenter who works in the area of ecotheology.  The format for each session will include a twenty minute video presentation and discussion of readings made available via the Internet. This group is coordinated by Allianne Duvall ( atduvall@sc.rr.com) and Calvert Kloop ( calvertklopp@gmail.com ), and will meet in the Stirling Room.
