The Chapel is a quiet small space for prayer and meditation. It provides a place where a person may retreat from noise and find a place to be still and open to God. Inside there is a specially crafted stained glass window, prie-dieu and a prayer desk for kneeling in prayer. All are welcome to find the stillness of this place.
Rev. Dr. Dave Holmes
So often I hear people who think they must abandon Christianity because they have encountered the scientific theory of evolution – and they think that this is somehow incompatible with Christian belief. Well, I definitely do not think that is the case. Neither do Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow, who have been travelling the countryside talking about what they call “Evolutionary Christianity.” Michael Dowd has written a book entitled “Thank God for Evolution” which is a fascinating marriage of evolutionary theory and Christian theology and practice. I heard Michael speak at last year’s Epiphany Explorations event in Victoria, and picked up some DVD’s while I was there. So join us, if you are interested, and we’ll watch some videos and talk a bit, and consider questions like these: Is Christianity (and religion in general) evolving? Should it?
How do religion and science fit together? (We’ll look at Dowd’s fascinating concept of “day” and “night” language, among other ideas) How does evolutionary theory cast light on Christian concepts like “sin?” Is the tension between science and religion a
problem? Or is it an exciting opportunity?
Come join us: four Wednesday evenings in February, in the Holy Grounds (youth) room, 7-9pm. Wednesday Feb 4 , 11, 18, 25. The sessions will work best together, but each one will also stand on its own. Please sign up in the church narthex or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Drop ins are also welcome!
Walking a labyrinth is a spiritual practice for those who are seeking to deepen their faith. The Labyrinth allows one to quiet the mind and/or take time for self reflection and prayer. The Labyrinth is available to individuals or groups.
The Library is a place to come and find a variety of books and other reading materials. Relax and read by the fireplace. The library is available to all every Sunday after worship. New books are added and donated frequently. Click for library news.
