The Christian Education at Saint Michael and All Angels is an important part of our community life. A mixed offering of programs provides opportunities for everyone to grow in their Christian faith through didactic study and hands on learning.
The Sunday Forums, which are held between the two services each Sunday morning (9:30-10:15) from November through March in the Parish Hall, are well attended. These Forums focus on a common theme which addresses subjects appropriate for Christian living in the world.
The 2015-16 theme was, "The Place of Religion in a Rapidly Changing World".
The complexities of religions and faith systems in the world have challenged and perplexed humanity for centuries. Where is the divine essence in this material and often skeptical world? How do we define and undertand this concept, and still respect each faith position? As technology continues to shrink our little planet, placing us in quick proximity to one another, how do we foster opennessm, awareness, and understanding that will preserve us, lead us to non-violent ways of disagreeing, and enable us to thrive and flourish as a human race? Join us for a series of forums that will tap into these issues, share personal stories and continue to explore the place of religion in this complex and rapidly-changing world.
Come and be challenged!!
A time for questions and answers gives the large audience an opportunity to be heard and to have their concerns addressed.
The forum theme for 2016-17 will be announced soon!
