Practicing Our Faith Study Series
WEDNESDAYS @ 6:30 PM
Beginning on Wednesday, June 12, we will take a journey through The Book of Common Prayer, the Christian life, and basic beliefs of our faith in a 14-session study curriculum. Practicing Our Faith will walk us through the liturgical year, the sacraments of the church, the habits of daily prayer, and the teachings of Anglican Christianity. In this study, we will see how our prayer shapes our belief, how we live our lives, and how our beliefs lead us into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
Practicing Our Faith offers a survey of the basic beliefs and practices of the Anglican tradition, focused deeply on The Book of Common Prayer and our liturgical and sacramental traditions. These beliefs and practices remind us that we are the inheritors of the immeasurable greatness of God’s power that transforms each of us and strengthens us to serve the world in Christ’s name. In practicing our faith, we learn to live as disciples, not just one day a week but each day of our lives. Even though we pray the words of The Book of Common Prayer every week and every day, many of us don’t know where these prayers come from, what they mean, or how they call us to live on a daily basis. Practicing Our Faith walks us step by step through our prayer book.
Each Wednesday evening at 6:30, we will gather to hear a short lecture on one section of The Book of Common Prayer, exploring what the liturgy says and how it is typically used in our communities. Then we will explore together the connections between the words of our prayers, our beliefs, and the daily practice of our faith. We invite you to get a copy of the book Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs and Practices, and join us for the next several Wednesday evenings as we explore together.
