Sunday 10:10-Forums in Lent

Five different 10:10-Forums will be offered on February 17, 24 and March 3, 10, 17, 24

A Spirituality of Good Health (Dean Willey Hall)
God's love is always calling us in a gentle and persistent way. Receiving God's love brings health and vitality to our souls. God wants to support us in our endeavors to have healthy balance and perspective in our lives, but sometimes there are self imposed obstacles in our receiving the healing grace of God. Come to Dean Willey Hall on Sundays during Lent at the 10:10 am time if this topic interests you. There will be a particular focus on good health in family systems and the good health to be discovered in working through freedom from addictions. Presenters will be: Harrison Smith, Elizabeth McGuinness, Robert Dennis and Canon Susan Joplin.

Caring for Creation (Chapter Room)
Join Whole Creation Community and the St. Paul's Green Team for a diversity of topics. Topics will encourage us to think about our own faith stories and how our life experiences shape our relationship with Creation. Topics will focus on our commitment as fellow workers in God's creation to each other and to our environment. Forum sessions will include, discussions on spirituality, crafting something reusable from plastic bags, a film on "stuff", an introduction to Cool Congregations, becoming an everyday environmentalist, and an introduction to the book,Of Wolves and Menby Barry Lopez which will be studied in greater detail during the Easter Season.

Redeeming Mary Magdalene: A Deeper Look at Jesus' Most Misunderstood Apostle (Parlor)
We invite you to spend time this Lent reading and discussing the Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault's book,The Meaning of Mary Magdalene: Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity. Rev. Bourgeault is an Episcopal priest and one of today's most respected contemplative teachers. Our Presiding Bishop Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori writes that Bourgeault's book is "a remarkable invitation into the origins and wisdom of Christianity, through the apostolic witness of Mary Magdalene. Expect a challenge, perhaps more than you are ready for. This book should change something, as it invites you to deepen your capacity for love, through the witness of Jesus's beloved disciple." Discussion leaders: Joyce Gibb and MaryAnn Sonntag. The book will be available at the Cathedral Bookstore or on your kindle/nook. We ask that you read Chapters 1-3 before our first session.
