This year St. Paul’s invites you to join us on a transformative journey to Be Reconciled. Through Sunday morning formation sessions, book studies, speakers, and retreats, we are tracing an arc of reconciliation through three movements: reconciling relationships, reconciling to God, and reconciling communities.
The work of reconciliation is never easy and never complete, but as disciples we are called to follow The Way of Jesus. As Episcopalians we vow to “seek and serve Christ in every human being,” and “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” As church members we are reminded that the mission of the Church is to “restore all people to unity with God and each other through Christ.”
We invite you to walk with us through the challenging and holy path of reconciliation; to consider what relationships need reconciling; to consider your own relationships with God; and to look upon your community, the city, and the world, with hearts fixed upon God’s dream of reconciling the world through Christ.
November 20-February 5: Reconciling to God
God is always chasing us down, that’s the good news. The bad news is we seem to always run away. In this series, we examine what separates us from God, what connects us, and how to develop a new relationships with our triune God.
