Christ in Community Part 2

Dear friends,

We will begin the Fall with a short, three-week study on Christ in Community. Class begins the week of September 17. If you were with us in the Spring, you will recall that we ended the first part of Christ in Community early – well this is the second, concluding part.

We will be meeting Tuesday nights 7:15–9:00 at the Center, Wednesday nights in Charlotte, and Thursday mornings 9:30–11:30 at the Center. For more information, download our flyer here.

I look forward to seeing you all then!

Grace be with you,

Ted

P.S. If you weren’t with us for Part 1, don’t be at all apprehensive about joining us for Part 2 – we will begin with an introduction to make sure everyone is up to speed.

Class Canceled Tonight

We’ve decided to cancel classes tonight on account of bad road conditions. We’re sorry for getting word out so late: we were hoping conditions would improve as the day went on, but we hear roads are still pretty bad.

We are still on for tomorrow night in Charlotte and Thursday morning at the St. Irenaeus Center – hope to see you then!

Announcing Christian Prayer

This is an announcement that our winter Bible study will start in two weeks (the week of January 22). We will be going into a six-week series on Christian Prayer, drawing from Scripture and Tradition. Have a look at our flyer for details (here).


In the usual meaning of prayer, a person sets out to approach God, either in petition or praise. Regardless of the person’s understanding, this is no small thing. It is to enter the realm of the spiritual and to approach the Supreme Being from whom we have our being and every good gift. His nature is altogether holy in a majesty inexpressible, his power is absolute, and his glory fills the universe, though mortal minds can scarcely comprehend it.  Yet he has sent us his Son to show the measure of his love for man.  With infinite mercy and kindness, he beckons us to draw near. This is a wondrous thing indeed.

We hope you can join us as we begin to explore the glory of Christian prayer!
