  • Thursday AM Study Group: The Thursday AM study group is currently studying the book “The Sign & The Sacrifice” by Rowan Williams. The study will continue each Thursday from 10:30 to 11:30AM until March 7th. Group members are asked to procure their own book. Copies are available from Amazon or Chapters. During Lent: We will be using the “It’s time to…Stop, Pray, Work, Play, and Love” Lenten materials from The Society of St. John the Evangelist. Over this five week study, we invite you to join us in reflecting on our use of time, focusing especially on how we might take time to stop, pray, work, play and love. Together we will ponder our use of time, asking God to help us weave together the various threads of our lives into a beautiful tapestry in which each part of our life informs and complements the others, and enlivens the whole. If you are unable to attend on Thursday’s, you can receive the study materials via email from the SSJE at www.ssje.org/time/.
