Sunday Adult Education

October 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16 at 6:30 p.m. Sunday Asylum led by the Rev. David Olson
Have you ever noticed that we Christians are just a little bit “different” than the world around us, and wondered if that is good or bad? Do you ever question why the church exists today and what our role in the world is? If you have, then the 5 week series based on Stanley Hauerwas’ book Soul Asylum would be a great class for you to attend. Come hear Rev. David Olson guide us through these questions and so much more as we explore what it means to be on this crazy adventure called Church…and why there is no place better for us to be. Classes are Sunday nights October 12 through November 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.
Choral Evensong featuring Randall Thompson’s “Peaceable Kingdom” Note day and time!


This seminal work of Randall Thompson’s was inspired by the American folk-art of Edward Hicks, the preaching Quaker from Pennsylvania. Hicks, self-taught, created a series of “Peaceable Kingdom” paintings to reflect one of his favorite topics - Isaiah 11:6-9: “The wolf shall also dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.”

St. John’s Choir and David Charles Campbell offer this piece for your Evensong worship and reflection.
