Class Descriptions:

  • Embracing Forgiveness (Conference Room) - "Embracing Forgiveness" is welcome balm for a culture struggling for civility and reconciliation. Master storyteller and teacher Barbara Cawthorne Crafton leads a group of adults in a revealing and helpful exploration of what forgiveness is not, first of all, and then, what it is and how to find it in our lives, on both the personal and communal level. Warm, honest, realistic and practical, "Embracing Forgiveness" offers tonic for troubled souls. Led by Annie Burton.
  • Gay & Faithful (Baker Parlor) - This class is for anyone who wants to explore homo- and bisexuality as they relate to and complement our Christian faith. Learn along with the Rev. Amber Carswell as we approach this timely subject through the lenses of scripture, tradition, and reason.
  • English Spirituality (Morrison Hall) - We will survey the development, from the Middle Ages to the present, of approaches to our relationship with God that we might see as distinctively English.  Frequently, we will refer to writings of and about representative figures in each historical era.  Along the way, we will note how we Episcopalians have derived much from the spiritual outlook and practices of English Christians through the centuries.
  • Introduction to Theological Debate (Lower Mitchell House) - This five-week "Introduction to Theological Debate" is led by Dr. Keller.
