The Color-Coded Church Year
Presenter: The Reverend Chandler Irwin
Time is an interesting thing. When you think of a year, is it based on the calendar year from January to December, or maybe a school year from August to June, or even a fiscal calendar that is based around quarters? How often does the calendar of the church affect the rhythm and pattern of your life? Join us this Sunday as the Rev. Chandler Irwin leads us in the first installment of the Nuts and Bolts of Episcopal 101. We will explore our church calendar: its seasons, colors, the readings, and particular liturgical aspects. Through learning and going deeper into some of the what and why of our Episcopal tradition, we are able to gain a deeper understanding of the way God is able to permeate our world, even our calendar.
The late Rev. Dr. Urban T. Holmes described the Episcopal Church and its Anglican ethos as creating “a world of wonder in which it is very easy to fall in love with God.”
This winter/spring class will explore the unique ethos, spirituality, literature, practices, beliefs, and approaches to the Christian Faith that comprise what it is to be an Episcopalian. Presenters include the clergy as well as special presenters from Virginia Wesleyan and Virginia Theological Seminary. Whether you are exploring becoming a member of the Episcopal Church or you are a cradle Episcopalian looking to understand the beauty of the faith more deeply, or somewhere in between, you may find this class for you.
Interested in joining the church? This will serve as your preparation. Youth welcome.
