Please note: The start time for the early service is 8:15 AM; it is our objective to start the Sunday Christian Education Classes promptly at 9:30 AM.
Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication
Once again, Professor Bart D. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, offers us this series of 24 lectures that explores and considers the varieties of belief and practice in the early days of Christianity, before the church had decided what was theologically acceptable and determined which books should be included in its canon of Scripture.
This class will be facilitated by Peggy Stoll and will meet in the Welcome Room at 9:30 am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month. Please join us to learn more about early Christianity and their sacred texts.
From the Library: Culture Club meeting on Sundays
June 12 Children’s Literature Nurtures the Soul
Children’s literature cuts to the chase! Whether you need help comforting your child after a loss, helping someone who is being bullied, or want a better verbalization for how you, or a child, may be feeling, there a book for that! Besides reading to your child, you can read it yourself before embarking on an important topic of discussion, or even (no shame in this…) read a children’s book yourself to distill something that seems overwhelming, like the loss of a loved one or understanding why people do the things they do or feel the way they do. The St. Andrew’s library has a number of excellent children’s books to nurture the soul.
June 26 Understanding Our Culture With Media
There is a lot going on these days in the library at St. Andrew’s! We want your input. Join us to talk about what you and your friends and family are enjoying in the world of books, magazines, movies, online reading, etc! Did something have a big impact on you? Are your kids loving a new book series – or even a new game? We want to hear about it! We’ll share a bit about some great new library materials and then just have fun talking about what we’re all reading, Of course there will be cookies!
