2012 Adult Spirituality & Education Program

CALENDAR FOR ADULT SPIRITUALITY & EDUCATION

Sunday Forums: Beginning January 15th we will begin a series that promises to be informative about the Kingdom of God.  Join us as we begin John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg’s series, First Light, Jesus and the Kingdom of God. Participants will have a notebook and discussion guide for each session. Join us at 9:00 on Sunday mornings as we visit the matrix, tour the world of parables, and see the demonstrations in Jerusalem!

PRAYER GROUP & BOOK GROUP: quiet reflection and sharing, 1:00 – 2:30 pm Mondays through June.

WEEKLY BIBLE STUDIES: There are two weekly opportunities for Bible Study.  The Wednesday 10:30 a.m. to Noon study is for all-comers, and takes place in the parish lounge.  The Friday 7:00 a.m. study is a group of men who meet at Joe’s Deli in Rocky River for breakfast and bible study.  Both groups generally follow a serial reading of various books of the Bible.  Discussions are usually quite lively!!

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER: Every year, Keith offers this basic “Introduction to the Christian Faith, Episcopal style.” Over the 13 weeks of the program, we review Holy Scripture, Church History, ideas of the Church, Prayer, Sacramental Life, and Ministry. The program is a combination of talks, small and large group discussions, experiential learning, and personal journaling.  “Journey to the Center” is a perfect opportunity for those new to the faith, new to the Episcopal Church, or those wishing to refresh their knowledge and experience of the faith.  It is an experience shared with other seekers of all ages.

“Journey to the Center” is also the way St. Peter’s individuals are prepared for the sacramental rites of baptismal reaffirmation (confirmation, reception).  Candidates will be partnered with a sponsor or sponsors for several additional learning experiences.

Young people who seek to be confirmed should turn 16 within six months of the Bishop’s visit.  Younger teens may take “Journey” and seek confirmation, but they and their parents must first have a private conversation with Keith.
