One of the four focus points of our School for Christian Practice is “sacramental ethics.” This phrase describes how our way of living is shaped and nurtured by our practices of prayer and our sharing in the sacramental life of the Church. In terms of our Christian practice, we are meant to grow and change as the Holy Spirit convicts us and invites us into a deeper awareness of God’s presence in our lives.
The way a community organizes its life is also shaped by prayer and theological reflection, from how we structure our services to how we govern our common life. Questions like “What does ‘Episcopal’ really mean in our life?” and “How are decisions actually made in our parish church and in the diocese?” are vital for us to consider. Indeed, this past year of Covid-time has invited us all into a clearer awareness of just how our common life is shaped.
To help those who are new to the life of this parish–and those who have been here for a while but who would appreciate a “refresher course”– Stuart will offer a special five-week Episcopal 101 class during Lent for adults and youth. The class will be held on Sundays, February 21, 28, March 7, 14, and 21 from 9:30 – 10:20 AM on Zoom.
This class is a timely choice for any who want to be or need to be confirmed or received into The Episcopal Church, as the northeast Georgia convocation of the Diocese of Atlanta will offer confirmation at Grace Church on June 13 and June 14.
