40 Days with St. Ignatius

Posted onJune 7, 2017 | by: Fr. Ross Guthrie | 0 comments

This past Lenten season, I walked with a group of people through a 40- Day Stay-At-Home Retreat. We based our experience on St. Ignatius of Loyola's The Spiritual Exercises. Simply put, it is a series of meditations on the life of Jesus: his Incarnation, teaching, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, reign in glory, gift of the Holy Spirit, and bodily return....Keep Reading

Our Anglican Tradition

Posted onMay 3, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

Whether you’re new to the Anglican way or you’re familiar with it, exploring the richness of our liturgy and tradition is invaluable to our shared life with God. The way we practice our script when we gather each Sunday, that is, the way we worship, deeply forms us to be a people who then live out that script in and for the world the rest of the week. That’s why it’s important for us to stop from time to time and give attention to what we’re doing when worship together....Keep Reading

Train Yourself to Walk with Christ

Posted onMarch 3, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

We’ve sounded the call for Lent, we’ve made preparations for its coming, and now, with Ash Wednesday on March 1, it is finally upon us. The Apostle Paul compares the Christian life to a race, one that demands preparation and training. He writes these words to the Corinthians: “Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one. So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air; but punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified” (1 Cor 9:25...Keep Reading

Reflections on the Women's Tea

Posted onFebruary 1, 2017 | by: Tamarin Huelin | 0 comments

The women’s tea was a gift with many layers to me. Clearly, a great deal of preparation went into making it a gift for all who attended. The lovely table décor, the set apart location, the sandwiches, petit fours, coffee and tea, the great company of women, and the hilarious and thought- provoking skit offered by Nita and Terry provided just some of the outer layers....Keep Reading

Epiphany Book Clubs

Posted onJanuary 3, 2017 | 0 comments

Our church is filled with people who love to read, but too often we find ourselves reading alone, wishing we had others with whom we could discuss our thoughts. As a step toward creating a community that reads, thinks, and converses, together, we are offering a variety of different book clubs during the season of Epiphany. Each will be facilitated by a different person, will read a different book, and will meet at a different time and place. If you’re able, be sure to sign up for one of them and enjoy the conversation. Here are the groups that are being offered....Keep Reading

Kitchen Supplies for Refugees

Posted onDecember 5, 2016 | by: Brian Larsen Wells | 0 comments

During the season of Advent, our Youth and Children's Ministries will be collecting kitchen items to donate to refugee families who have been resettled in Memphis, TN. Many of these families are from Burma, the Congo, Somalia, Syria, and Iraq. They have left their homes in the hope of finding safety here in Tennessee. We want to welcome them to our country and show them that we care about their situation, remembering always that our Savior Jesus Christ was once a refugee in need of sanctuary (Matthew 2:13-23). We will take all collected items to World Relief in early January, during the season of Epiphany (the season when we remember Christ's refugee status). Please consider giving generously to this worthy cause!...Keep Reading

The Story of St. Francis

Posted onOctober 4, 2016 | by: Brian Larsen Wells | 0 comments

The man who would become St. Francis was born the son of a wealthy cloth merchant in the city of Assisi. When the boy was born, his mother asked that the he be named Giovanni, after John the Baptist, for she had great hopes that her son would grow to become a man of God, perhaps even a priest. The boy's father wanted nothing to do with such religious nonsense. He defied his wife and had the boy named Francesco, which means "free one."...Keep Reading
