About

The Psalms are at the core of our common prayer life as Anglicans, but some Psalms can be difficult to understand because the world they reflect is so different from our own. We tend to prefer Psalms that are immediately accessible (like Psalm 23) and avoid those that seem difficult to our modern sensibilities.

This study presents an opportunity to understand the scope of the Psalter and grow, not only in our prayer lives, but also as human beings made fully alive and formed into Christ’s likeness.

Cultivating Christlikeness

A Study of Spiritual Character

Begins Monday, August 23

About

Christians often talk about living “like Jesus.” But what does that really mean? The Apostle Paul summarizes Christlikeness in nine words: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These “fruits of the Spirit” are the visible evidence of God’s Spirit at work in a person’s life, qualities which Christians are called to cultivate.

In this study, we look at each of these nine aspects of spiritual character in order to better understand what it means to be “like Jesus” for the sake of the world.

The Fifth Gospel

A Study of Isaiah

Begins Monday, November 1

About

What made the birth of Jesus in the first century so special? What made his death on a Roman cross so important? For centuries, Christians have searched the Old Testament for answers. The early church fathers found Isaiah’s prophecy of Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection so clear and profound that they gave the book a special nickname: the Fifth Gospel.

As we study this book together, we will discover how the book of Isaiah sheds fresh light on the central mystery of our Christian faith.
