Rector’s Forum:
Welcome Happy Morning

In the Rector’s Forum, the Rev. Dr. Fred Horton and the Rev. D. Dixon Kinser will present a series, “Welcome Happy Morning: How the Resurrection of Jesus Christ Transforms the World,” on May 7, 14 and 21 in Colhoun A at 10:15 a.m.

When Jesus rose to new life on Easter Day, he changed the entire scope of all humanity’s relationship to God. What was once dead in us all is now alive in Jesus Christ. But how did we get here? Why do we need Jesus’ resurrection? And what does it mean to live as Easter people, here on earth?

Join Fred and Dixon for a discussion of the theology of the resurrection for our time and place.

May Faith & Justice Program

The 2016-17 Faith & Justice Committee Lunch and Speaker Series, In My Backyard: Faith and Current Events, will conclude Thursday, May 18 at 12:00 noon in Colhoun A.

The speaker will be the Rev. John E. Shields, Priest Associate at St. Paul’s. His program is titled, “When Fear Enters the Equation, the Devil Usually Wins.”

According to John, misguided legislation, unjust prison sentences, and institutional racism all share a common denominator: Fear. When systems stigmatize and scapegoat the other, we all suffer. Our faith should inform our response.

Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.
