Adult Formation

 

Adult Formation will meet this Sunday the17th to view and discuss

"The Universe Within", a video presentation by Ilia Delio.

 

She believes, and cites both religious and scientific authorities to support the idea, that "Evolution is the rise of Consciousness", and this evolution of consciousness is drawing us all into the future, in our daily lives. 

 

She unites the idea to the beginning of the cosmos, saying consciousness is fundamental to all things and may even drive matter. In any case, the study of consciousness is fundamental to both science and religion,. She wraps up her talk by linking the ideas into a new and larger concept of Christ making all things new.

 

As Advent draws us into a new awareness of God in our lives, Clare Julian and Sarabeth thought this presentation was an exciting motivator, and want to share it with St. Paul's.

2017 Christmas Pageant

 

On Saturday, December 23 at 9:00 AM we will have a quick rehearsal for the Christmas Pageant. If you are unable to attend this rehearsal but still want to have your child/children in the Pageant, just let me know (russpack@outlook.com or 801.970.2977). I know that this is a busy time of year, and so will certainly understand if you can’t make the rehearsal itself.

 

The Christmas Pageant will take place Sunday, December 24 at the 5:00 Family Service. Please plan on arriving by 4:15 for costumes and final preparation. The children will sit in the front pews but will re-join you for the remainder of the service following the Pageant.

 

If you have any questions or need any other information, please do not hesitate to let me know.

 

Thanks a million for your kind support!
