Everybody Loves a Good Story: Narrative Theology September Priest-in-Residence, The Rt. Rev’d. Neff Powell, will offer a presentation on Narrative Theology, the study of God through stories. Bishop Powell will begin with the stories of salvation, from Abraham and Sarah to the resurrection, and then expand on some of the stories within that overarching narrative arc. The powerful stories in scripture provide a biblical frame of reference, which help shape who we are as a people of faith, both as individuals and as a community. Free of Charge. Tuesday, September 20, 6:30 pm.
A Century of Stories and Surprises: Adventures in the Archives at the House of the Redeemer Folders, folders, folders; storage boxes and finding aids. What do they contain? Thousands of voices: ladies and gentlemen, plumbers and upholsterers, movie producers and advertising directors, artists and musicians, bishops, priests, deacons and assorted spouses, nuns, retreatants and overnight visitors from Alaska to Australia. Daily life details: memos on tapestries, shower curtains, telephones, toilet seats, chapel decorations and seasonal vegetable prices; convent budget drafts and building maintenance reports; intimate personal letters and courageous accounts of personal faith journeys. Join Jean Ballard Terepka, historian and archivist at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, NY; to learn what she has found... what could be more exciting? Suggested donation: $15. Thursday, October 6, 6:30 pm.
Recovering the Sacred Story A strong sense of “belonging” is a foundation for a happy, creative and productive life. Being recognized, claimed and loved secures a future filled with hope. It seems safe to say that Jesus knew this from his earliest days with us. And yet, his followers often turned away from this bedrock of hope and believing. Jesus was a Jew by religion, but something more by faith. Often he would say, “You have heard it said, but I say to you….” Who was Jesus’ God after all? Is that God one we can belong to also? Do we hope this God from our earliest of our beginnings? From saying and events in Jesus’ life story perhaps we can discern and develop a renewed profile of that God. Join the Rev’d. Cn. Dr. John Rice in his discussion of the God of Jesus…from his point of view. Free of charge. Tuesday, October 18, 6:30 pm.

Exploring our Episcopal Hymnals From 1913-1918 the Episcopal Church embarked on a dramatic new project in the Anglican Communion: the development of a full hymnal which would support the liturgical singing of hymns and service music. The Hymnals of 1940 and 1982 and their supplements have intentionally carried this idea forward. The Rev’d. Tom Damrosch, January 3-13 Priest-in-Residence, will explore highlights of the offerings of these books, with musical illustrations and optional participation. Free of Charge. Tuesday, January 10, 6:30 pm.

Come and explore the traditions of Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Beating the Bounds, Harvest and Rogation Sunday rituals, Morris dancing, Good Friday and much more! Free of charge.
