This eight week course, in engaging small groups of 6-10, will be led by the Rev Tim Boggs. Digging into the beauty of scripture, listening to appealing contemporary scholars, and then playfully getting in touch with our place in the story. This course, successfully test-driven this past summer by seminarian Holly Clark will use the Animate series, by WeareSparkHouse, a respected Protestant publisher.

 

  • Sacred Stories Small group facilitated, weekly, personal story-telling.,

Beginning in November. Watch for the sign-up sheet.

Refreshing a great St. Alban’s tradition, Sacred Stories offers a warm, confidential time for sharing. By touching on the sacred heart of our own stories we will find…through listening, prayer and laughter… the affinity, dignity and hope at the center of each other’s lives. Led by trained leaders these groups of 6-8 will meet weekly or bi-monthly (as group members prefer) throughout the late fall and winter.
