    Word Salad?  A Conversation about Key Christian Words
    Christian faith, like any religion, has its own language. It deploys a set of terms drawn from the Biblical revelation around which its worship, devotion, and theological reflection are organized. As ordinary believers, we learn ‘to speak Christian’—and so to act and think Christianly—primarily through engagement with the Scriptures, prayers, and hymns of the Church. But these terms apart from theological reflection can sometimes degenerate into a kind of ‘word salad’; words we use without any clear sense of their meaning. This fall we will have an opportunity to reflect together on four primary terms of the Christian vocabulary on four successive Wednesday evenings:
    God – October 26
    Jesus Christ – November 2
    Holy Spirit – November 9
    The Human Being – November 16
    Each session will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion. The sessions will be facilitated by the Rev'd Canon Dr. Tim Connor. All are welcome!
  3. MELODIES OF THE 60s: VIGNETTE PIANO TRIO. Featuring Neil F. Young, Laurence Gauci & Tim Adair. A concert benefiting St. Stephen’s Church, Stratford.
