ADULT FORUM FOR OCTOBER
Beginning on October 11 Fr. Dale will teach about our heritage as Anglicans and Episcopalians using slides ,and the book he edited (and available in St. George’s Gift Shop), Archbishop Michael Ramsey’s The Anglican Spirit. The book was originally published in 1991, and re-published by the Episcopal Church’s “Church Publishing” as a Seabury classic in 2004. It includes a Foreword by the present archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The schedule will be:
October 11: Our Anglican Heritage, Beginnings (book, Foreword, Preface, Chap. 9 )
October 18: English Reformation I (book, Chapters 1 and 2)
October 25: Missionary Outreach to America (book, Chap. 3)
November 1: The Oxford Movement, and its effects on the Episcopal Church (Chapter 4)
November 8: A True Anglican: F. D. Maurice (Chapter 5)
November 15: Two Great English Leaders: Charles Gore and William Temple (Chapters 6,7)
November 22: Anglicanism Since WWII (Chapter 8)
November 29: Where we are Today in the Episcopal Church
A further note: our Parish Library holds many wonderful classics for Episcopalians, and it would reward anyone to look over our collection. There is no better introduction to the Christian Faith than Bishop N. T. Wright’s Simply Christian. C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity is a great classic from WWII. A third book is Alister McGrath’s I Believe. The latter two authors are from Northern Ireland.
