St. Paul’s Men’s Ministry invites the men of the parish to gather in the Colhoun Room on Monday, September 12, from 5:30 to 6:00 for socializing and from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. for dinner and a program by the Rev. Dr. Stuart Hoke.
Stuart will share his “up close and personal” experience of 9/11 as a staff member at Trinity Wall Street in New York. During his interim ministry at St. Paul’s, Stuart gave us an eye-witness account of that day in 2001 on which the dust fell on all of us—wherever we were. This fall as we observe the 15th anniversary of September 11th, he will share dimensions of spiritual redemption that rose from the ashes of the Twin Towers. Stuart will frame his narrative with an obscure Biblical theme—the Province Beyond the River—an arena of Christian hope where life conquers death, light vanquishes darkness, joy emerges from suffering, and service remedies despair.
The cost for dinner is $10, payable at the door. No reservation is required, but those who plan to attend are asked to email Tom McDowell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
