Lenten Learning Opportunities - Online this Lent 2021 on Zoom
Book Study and Discussion on Love Is the Way – Wednesday’s @ 7 p.m.
“We know love is the answer but if you’re anything like me , you still have questions on how love can really impact the world around us”, remarks our seminarian, Maggie Parrott. In his new book, Love is the Way, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry explores what love is and how we find it, if love can really change the world like they say it will, who we are called to love as Christians, how to overco me the things that divide us and make love difficult to achieve, and many other questions he gets when he speaks on Love. If any of these topics interest you, please join me on Wednesday evenings at 7pm during the season of Lent (starting February 24) as we read and talk through Love is the Way together.
You can purchase the book on amazon. It is available in hardcover and on kindle.
I look forward to reading and learning with all of you. ~ Maggie Parrott

Compline Services on Zoom during Epiphany
Tuesday and Thursday Evenings at 8:30 p.m.
There were a handful of folks who attended our Zoom Compline services during Advent, so we will try offering them twice a week during January to see if they provide a meaningful way for people to gather together for worship during these continuing times of social isolation.
We’ll begin this week on Tuesday, January 5th and Thursday, January 7th. Compline is the last prayer service of each day – a brief time (about 10 minutes) that communities gather together to “say goodnight” to God and one another before heading to bed.
The Compline Service is found in the Book of Common Prayer (p. 127-135) and it will appear on the screen for those who log into Zoom on a computer, iPad, or other device. If you prefer to phone in on one of the numbers listed below, you can follow along in your own Prayer Book. Here are the instructions for joining in this lovely and brief time of prayer:
Download the Zoom Meeting or Zoom Cloud program on your computer, iPad, or phone.
A few minutes before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings open or start the Zoom program or app.
