This week’s Forum: “Welcoming soul and weaving community in a wounded world” with the Rev. Gary Jones
When: Sunday, March 6 at 10:15 am in the Nave and livestreamed
The Quaker writer and spiritual guide, Parker Palmer, noted that the soul is inherently shy and will remain hidden in times of contentiousness, division, selfishness, and violence. Harry Williams, a noted dean at Cambridge University, as well as a beloved priest, monk, and New Testament scholar, predicted that the only churches that will thrive in the future will become schools and centers of contemplation. In our next two forums, Rev. Gary Jones, recently retired rector from St. Stephen’s Church in Richmond, will ponder themes of “returning home” and “uncovering buried treasure” – how ancient Christian insights have much to offer those who seek to welcome soul, our true life and peace, in a chaotic, stressful, and often violent world.
