One of the hallmarks of Holy Spirit Anglican Church is the offering of in depth classes on Sunday after our worship service and lunch. These classes aim to be a balance between subject matter that is theoretical and that which is practical. We also try to cycle through different areas: Bible, history, theology, missions/evangelism, sacraments, etc. Our goal is that these courses would enrich our Christian lives, both in mind and body.
Descriptions of our classes during this Lent 2016 season are below. Both will meet from 11:30am-12:30pm on Sunday mornings from February 14th through March 20th.
The Mystery of the Trinity
This class will explore the Christian belief that there is one God existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We will see how this belief is a source of joy and hope, and how it is crucial for our understanding of salvation, creation, and our life of discipleship. We will use the book Delighting in the Trinity by Michael Reeves. (available on Amazon or order through Amy Dewey – $10)
Anglican Spiritual Practices
The season of Lent is time for many people to practice a spiritual discipline in order to draw closer to God. Some of the disciplines the Book of Common Prayer encourages are praying daily, studying, confessing sins, fasting, and giving to the needy. But why should these practices be limited to Lent? In this class we will learn the what, why, and how of several spiritual disciplines that open our lives more to God during Lent and beyond.
