Rector’s Forum – Beginning this morning, Father Dale will lead a class on Christian faith and life from an Anglican and Episcopalian point of view.  We will cover everything from Jesus as the center of our faith and his life and ministry to the Kingdom of God; the Apostolic Community and the Holy Spirit to the Church as a Sacrament of Christ; Church History (the early church and the Creeds, Middle Ages, Reformation, the English Church and the Anglican Communion) to the Book of Common Prayer and the Sacraments of the Church.  Bring your Bibles!
