St. Paul's Lenten Reflections

This year's Lenten reflections from St. Paul's are posted daily here (or look to the left to see links to the five most recent reflections).

The meditations were written by the members and friends of our parish. They honor our mutual commitment to lifelong spiritual formation. Inspired by the Scripture readings each day, every offering is original and reflects the thoughts, interpretations, and feelings of the author.

We hope that these meditations will help guide your journey through the Holy Season of Lent. May our lives be enriched as we share our understandings in these offerings.

Community Night  and Sunday Adult Ed Offerings During the Easter Season

Adult Education

Rector’s Book Group

Sabbath, a short book written by Rabbi Abraham Heschel in 1951, is a gem. Heschel escaped the Nazis in the 1930s and went on to teach in New York. In this book, Heschel writes from an Orthodox Jewish perspective about universal truths of God’s gift of taking a day off once a week from whatever rat race ensnares us. “Sabbath,” says Rabbi Heschel, “is an opportunity to mend our tattered lives.” Rector Jim Richardson will lead a book discussion group on Wednesday evenings starting at 7 p.m. on April 8. You can purchase the book online, and we have a limited number of copies for use in the class.

From Adam to Zebulon

The Old Testament on DVD: The Great Courses presents Professor Amy-Jill Levine of Vanderbilt University Divinity School, whose lectures are informative, insightful, and even entertaining. At Community Night each week after dinner, Paula Kettlewell leads the group in viewing and discussing two lectures from the series. This course continues April 8.

How will my loved ones know what to do should something unexpected happen? How do I ensure that my wishes are fulfilled? What does my faith say about care at the end of life? When do I need to start talking to my family about my end-of-life decisions? Please see the schedule below. Adults of all ages are welcome!
