SHORT-TERM LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Each year during Lent, and occasionally during Advent, Grace offers opportunities to delve deeper into scripture and faith. Recent bible studies have included Paul’s letter to the Galatians and the Psalms. In Lent 2017, we explored the meaning of the cross in the 21st century. In the early fall of 2017 we held a "Legacies of the Reformation" series where we explored the significance of the Protestant Reformation for contemporary Christianity and Anglicanism. We had Professor Lee Palmer Wandel of UW-Madison come and speak, and ended the series with a Choral Evensong and Exploration of hymnody from the 16th & 17th centuries.
