Dear friends in Christ,

Tomorrow, more Abraham! We’ll be looking at chapters 14 and 15 of Genesis. Visitors and newcomers are welcome: on the fifth floor at 10am. I will repeat the class on Monday at 12:40pm on the second floor.

Tuesday: The Rector’s Christian Doctrine Class will be on “God the Holy Spirit: Being ‘Fully Alive’ with the Gifts of the Spirit.” This is the topic that got snowed out last week. Father Turner and I have redone the future classes – the dates are the same as previously announced, but some of the topics have been rearranged. The new list is on the website (look under “theology”)—we also have a revised brochure that I’ll pass out in class on Tuesday. This class is at 6:30pm. in Andrew Hall.

Wednesday: The Christopher Beha lecture, on Faith and Fiction. I have sensed a lot of excitement on this. Beha is a young author with a couple of well-received novels, in which the spiritual concerns of young adults are treated with remarkable sympathy. After his talk, Heather Cross and Andrea Lippke will engage Beha in a public conversation, along with me, and we’ll have time for Q&A, and there will be a reception. A free event, open to the public. I hope you’ll be able to attend, and feel at liberty to invite your friends. In the church, at 6:30 p.m. (or as soon as the mass that follows the 5:30 p.m. Evensong is concluded).

Father Austin
