Doors are Open Everywhere!

Sundays, January 26th & February 2nd: Martyrs' Hall: A Meditation with Dr. Ron McDonald, pastoral counselor and seminary professor, has taught classes in parent education and spirituality at St. Mary's before. He is a Quaker and will be teaching about the spiritual benefits of meditation and quietness. He will include meditations on music and play his hammer dulcimer.

Sunday, January 26th: Dr. Jerry's Harber's class resumes in the Undercroft (note location change) with the Epiphany series: Come Holy Spirit Come; Opening Ourselves to the Work of the Spirit. This Sunday's discussion of the Holy Spirit will look at what St. Peter's life can teach us about ours. Peter had a colossal fail when he denied Jesus, yet his leadership of Jesus followers afterwards was on par with Paul. What does this say to us? Come see.

Sundays, January 26, February 2, 9, 16, 23: Sisters' Chapel: Inquirers' Class Culminates with the Bishop's class and visit on Sunday, March 1st for confirmation, reception, reaffirmation and baptism. Click here for more info. Contact Interim Dean Gettys or Canon Williams with questions: lgettys [at] stmarysmemphis [dot] org pwilliams [at] stmarysmemphis [dot] org
