Calendar Notes

Please note that, beginning this week, there will be no Friday matins scheduled until Great Lent (the beginning of March).

January 18: Men's Fellowship Breakfast

A reminder that the men's breakfast is returning this week after a month break. As usual, we'll meet at 7:30 am at Archangel Michael Hall and have breakfast and coffee. Feel free to come later; we usually hang around until at least 9. (NB: If the Friday storm develops, we will cancel by emailing the men's group list. If you're not on that list and would like to be, please email matthewcpennington@gmail.com).

January 19: Parish Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 19, after Liturgy at Archangel Michael Hall. Materials will be emailed ahead of the meeting to members.

Food Shelf Reminder

The food shelf cupboard has become quite bare almost overnight! If you are out and about this week, consider purchasing some food to bring to share with our neighbors who visit the food shelf this weekend. We need everything that is listed in the guidelines, so please review them first. Thank you!

Sunday classes: January 19, 26

Adult Education

January 19: First Session of Adult Ed Book Hour

The third Sunday of the month, from January through June, will be an adult ed book hour. The first session will be January 19, and our book is How to be a Sinner (Peter Bouteneff). The focus of the this session will be pages  9-39 (preface, intro, chapter 1).

Our goal: A healthy guided conversation as we ask questions to examine the author’s arguments, assumptions, implications, to better understand his/her point of view, and to sharpen our own thinking.

Who is adult ed book hour for? Everyone! Do you just want to see if a book might interest you? All regular adult ed attenders are encouraged to attend, even If you have not read the book. Join in and learn from those who have read it!

How to purchase the book: Check out www.bookfinder.com for various online options and pricing (both used and new; SVS Press is the publisher of the book, which sells for $20 from their site).
