Anglican Roots: Fall 2014
The Anglican expression of Christian faith today comes from a rich and varied tradition branching out from its roots in England. Anglicanism today is deeply informed by its incarnational spirituality, political history and unique combination of both catholic and protestant theologies. This fall we will explore the historical roots of Anglican theology, spirituality, worship and practice, and consider how these relate to the diversity of our church and faith today.
We will meet from 9:00 – 9:45am on Sunday’s and Monday’s at 7:00pm for discussion. Please check the additional resources to the right or contact Christine to receive readings ahead of time.
