Final Words from the Cross Join Fr. Tara for this weekly series in Lent, Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. in the parish hall beginning Feb. 24. Delve into the significance of Jesus' "last" words for us, including "Father, forgive them", our topic for the 24th. Intentional last words come weighted with such significance. This is a new DVD series by acclaimed author and Methodist pastor Adam Hamilton. Honor Jesus' sacrifice with your commitment to stand with him at the cross.
Stations of the Cross are walked in the church Wednesdays in Lent at 5:30 p.m. It's about a half-hour; all are welcome.
Forty Minutes, a between-the-services adult educational program, is taking a new look at the Old Testament. The featured lecturer for the series is Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. If you haven't really thought much about the Hebrew Scriptures since your days at Sunday School, you are in for a few surprises in this series.
These lectures are scholarly but presented in a way that is approachable; no academic rigors are expected of participants at Forty Minutes. All are welcome to join us in a quest to discover new insights into the scriptures that Jesus embraced. Sessions are from 9:40 to 10:30 a.m.
The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday through next April. Join your neighbors for a fun outing in a dog-friendly (leashed, of course) block party, and support our farmers and bagel makers and book sellers, etc. etc. etc.
There's a pancake breakfast every first Saturday of the month (next one is Saturday, April 4) at the Farmers' Market. Come join us. More about the market here.
Ladies of the church and friends gathered for an afternoon of fashion and tea, featuring the gently used fashion designer clothing that is for sale at the Unique Boutique at the Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings. The event combined fun and a good cause!
A remembrance, tribute, breaking of bread together and sharing stories marked a final way for us to celebrate the life and times of our friend and fellow parishioner, Don Hutchings. His children were able to join us for a meal on Thursday, Feb. 26.
Both "Doc" (he was a physician among many other things) and our beloved Harriet, his wife of 67 years who also contributed greatly to the spirit of St. Paul's, were fondly remembered.
Don's eldest, Peter, read a loving eulogy which is printed along with Doc's obituary here, and below a video recording of the event.
