St. James will be hosting a four-part “deep dive” Scripture study on the Advent Gospel lessons. The class will meet on Monday evening starting November 25th and conclude on December 16th. Co-facilitated by the Dean and the Deacons, the class will look ahead to the upcoming Gospel reading for Sunday. Each session will explore in-depth the Gospel reading and its overall connection to the theme of Advent. The group’s questions and discussion will be instrumental in shaping the sermon for Sunday.
Mondays will be at 6:00PM with Eucharist in the Chapel. Followed by a light dinner being served at 6:30PM in the White Room. The class will begin at 7:00PM in the White Room and conclude no later 8:30PM.
We are asking for participants to pre-register for the education series. You can register online or there will be a sign-up sheet at the entrance of the Chapel/Cathedral for the next couple of Sundays.
