Coffee & Theology Oct. 7th: The Anglican Communion

On Wednesday, October 7, from 7-8:30 p.m., we’ll gather on Zoom for conversation about the Anglican Communion. The format consists of a thirty minute presentation by Fr. Tim (rector of St. Andrew’s), followed by an hour of conversation, discussion, and Q&A.

We’ll explore questions like: What is the Anglican Communion? How did it come about? What does it do? How does it impact us Episcopalians? Who is the Archbishop of Canterbury, and why is he important? What are the benefits and challenges of being a part of the Anglican Communion? Here’s the Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89794722686

Campfire Communion Wednesdays @ 7:30pm

We’re joining our Lutheran siblings for a brief, physically distanced service of Holy Communion on Wednesday nights around a fire (weather permitting). We gather on the lawn of Hope Lutheran Church (4201 Guilford Drive, behind Terrapin Row) for a short service and then folks can hang out after to enjoy the fire. Masks are mandatory and you must RSVP to attend. Learn more and sign up here: go.umd.edu/campfire

Evening Prayer & Conversation Mondays 7-8pm

Join students for a time to pause, connect, pray, and reflect together each week. We talk and have fellowship for about half an hour before moving into Evening Prayer. We take time during the service to reflect on the reading of the day in a conversational style discussion. We meet most Mondays of the semester on Zoom.

Fall 2020 Updates!

As the new semester approaches, we’re making plans for both in-person and online opportunities for us to connect. Stay tuned for more information, and check out our Facebook & Instagram pages for the latest info!

Connect tonight!

Join us this evening at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church for Prayer Service at 7:00 and free dinner after the service (around 7:30).

No Bible Study today! We’d planned to finish our study of Job with VeggieTales, but it turns out VeggieTales has never made a Job episode. (Which, you know, makes sense, because it would be a challenging story to tell with cartoon vegetables.) Join us at 6:00 next Tuesday as we start talking about Jonah! (If you can, read all 4 chapters before next week, but if you don’t get to it, come join the discussion anyway.)
