This class is built for the curious: people who are new to the Episcopal Church, new to the Cathedral, interested in baptism or confirmation, or simply eager to pray and study. Newcomers and regulars alike will explore Christian Discipleship: what it means and why it matters. Our essential question will be: what might it mean to join this Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement, and how might God be calling me to be a voice for justice and compassion in my neighborhood? In addition to the Bible and short essays, we’ll read Your Faith, Your Life- An Invitation to the Episcopal Church by Jennifer Gambler.
Together we’ll study scripture, learn from our past and present, and prayerfully listen for what God may be up to in our lives.
