Community Forums

Community Forums are held in the Parish Hall on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.  Child care is available in Room 4 during the forum.

Topics range from spirituality to church history to the application of Christian principles in our daily lives. Many of our speakers come from beyond the St. Jude's community and are experts in their fields.  

Advent poetry and prose

December 17, 2017
GOTS writers

Barara Simmons & GOTS writers share Advent poetry & prose.

Barbara Simmons, Diane Snow, LeMel Firestone-Palerm, Susan Von Konsky, all members of the GOTS Writers' Group, will host a roundtable discussion of each of their "writer's way" into a personal piece of writing - whether prose, poetry, memoir - that helps each "cultivate a space of calm and comfort and joy" during Advent.  Join them as they share writing they have done or have read that calls them to find "contemplative openings" into the heart of this Advent season.  They will also leave you with many ideas to continue your own personal journeys into this season of "wildness and wonder".  

Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.
