Beginning on February 7 at 3:00pm
Click here to join us on Zoom
In these challenging times of separation, we have had to become creative about how to “do” church and all of the ministries that are a part of being in a faith community. Our weekly Adult Education that occurred on Sunday mornings, is now changing to an online format. We invite you to join our zoom gatherings as we examine our faith and explore its implications in the world. The series will feature professional video presentations, online speakers, teachings, suggested readings and a streamed alternative worship experience. Themes will include: unity and diversity, the inward journey, and environmental justice. This online program will be offered Sundays at 3, and every third Sunday will include an alternative worship service such as jazz vespers, Taizé, or a choral evensong along with a teaching.
Sunday, March 7, or our first session, All Saints will host a live zoom presentation by Sister Miriam Elizabeth from The Order of Saint Helena, A Monastic Community for Women in The Episcopal Church.

Join us as Sister Miriam Elizabeth speaks about The Journey Inward – Practices of the Desert:
In the 3rd and 4th centuries, men and women went into the desert to be with God. Their teachings have been handed down since then and their practices of prayer have carried generations of Christians through their own deserts. What wisdom do they have to share with us today? What practices might carry us through the wilderness of our own lives? Join Sr. Miriam Elizabeth, OSH in exploration. Come and see!
