Lenten Study Series Continues each Sunday

Posted by Father Ken Parks on

     Lenten Study Series 2014:

 Embracing Spiritual Awakening 

   A few years ago we were exposed to the first sessions of a new teaching series.  The first sessions featured Phyllis Tickle. This year will be our fourth teaching series.  This year’s series will feature Diana Butler Bass: Embracing Spiritual Awakening:  The Dynamics of Experiential Faith.  The clergy of the diocese heard both Phyllis Tickle and Diana Butler Bass speak to us at the Diocesan Clergy Conference as a part of our continuing education that we are then able to bring back to you.

        We will begin the series with the first presentation on March 9, in Sengel Hall at 9:20 am. This will allow time for all of the Adult Sunday School classes to participate in the presentation and then if they so desire to leave and go to their particular class while the rest of us engage one another in a discussion of her presentation.

        There will be a break in the presentations on March 16th, as we all come together to The Rev. Canon Jason Alexander speak to us about the good things happening in the Diocese of Arkansas and about some new and exciting programs and resources the diocese has to offer.

        On March 23rd we will then continue the Spiritual Awakening Series.  The last session will be on Palm Sunday, April 13th.  Once the series has ended, you may check out the DVD.
