Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday series

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
"O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life." Amen.

The adult Sunday class is continuing the series, “Make Me an Instrument”. meeting on Zoom Sundays at 10:00a.m. In this curriculum, representatives and teachers from across the Episcopal church teach civil discourse as a skill we can develop and use to build healthier communities.
