Responding to God: Prayer, Connection and Community
In this session we will reflect on the varieties of prayer present in Anglican tradition and talk about how praying together and alone can deepen our relationship with God, ourselves, and one another. How has praying been foundational in our tradition? Why is praying together important? How might we deepen our prayer lives?

Being Washed and Being Fed: The Sacraments of Baptism and Communion
In this session we will discuss the role the sacraments of Baptism and Communion have had in Anglicanism. We will look at the Baptismal Covenant and some of the language of the Eucharistic prayers we use and talk about what has changed and what has remained the same in the understanding and practice of these sacraments.
May 2nd 7pm-8:30pm
Living as the Body of Christ: Acts of Loving Service as Spiritual Practice
In this final session we will reflect on the history of mission and service in the Anglican Church. How does being an Anglican Christian call us to live in the world? What have we learned over our history about how to live together followers of Jesus? What have we learned about how to engage in loving service that truly builds up the body of Christ?
