Young adults at Saint Mark’s gather regularly to connect, share their spiritual journeys and build community. We consider issues of faith, justice, ethics, and meaning—as we enjoy each other’s company and share a meal or social time together. Many of our members are new to the Episcopal church, so it is a comfortable and light-hearted way to explore what we believe, how we worship, and how we create joyful and resilient lives.
Coming up at Saint Mark's Cathedral:
First Monday of the Month (January 6, February 3, March 2), 7:30 p.m., Leffler Living Room
Come be a part of a lively discussion over a light dinner. Recent discussion topics have included:
- "How do heaven and hell figure (or not) into your belief system?"
- "What do you know of God, and how do you know?"
- "How and why do you pray?"
- "How are spirituality and sexuality connected?"
- "How do we understand the story of the cross and what does it have to do with us?"
Exploring Scripture with 20s and 30s:
Listening for God in Difficult Stories of the Bible
Four Thursday Evenings: October 3, 10, 17, & 24, 7–8:30 p.m., Leffler Living Room
Join with other 20s/30s as we study and interpret some of the challenging stories of scripture. What is challenging for you? What questions do you have for the text and for God? What was God trying to say then and now to us? We will look at a sample of Old Testament and New Testament passages from a variety of perspectives – historical, contextual, theological, and more—and discover how those texts hold meaning for our lives today. No prior experience or familiarity with scripture is required—just bring your curiosity and questions. Attendance at all four sessions is highly encouraged as each week will build on the last. Group limited to 12 participants
Facilitated by Canon Cristi Chapman. To register and receive preparatory materials or for questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
