Sunday Adult Education
With regular learning, our faith becomes much more than a collection of information; it becomes a lens through which we see our lives. And when we see with the eyes of faith, we are more likely to act as God would have us act, for our sakes and the sake of others.
Once a month, as an additional option, Family Sunday School will offer formation for all ages. The upcoming Sunday 10am Adult Education & Formation classes:
Sunday Morning at 10am in St. Barbara
Imagination and Faith: A Celebration of C.S. Lewis
November will be C. S. Lewis month at All Saints’ In honor of the 50th anniversary of his death on November 22nd, 1963, we will celebrate the life and writing of C. S. Lewis all November at All Saints’. Lewis was one of most influential Anglican writers in our history, and his works are treasured by all ages. A distinguished scholar at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Lewis is best known for his fictional books, especially “The Screwtape Letters,” and “The Chronicles of Narnia,” and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as “Mere Christianity” and “The Problem of Pain.”
November 3: “The Devil Finds Work,” the first of two classes on C. S. Lewis’ engaging masterpiece, “The Screwtape Letters.” In this class, led by Professor Myles Lynk, we will examine Lewis’ exploration of personal frailty in the face of temptation and despair.
November 10: “Our Lord’s Love Prevails,” the second of two classes on C. S. Lewis’ engaging masterpiece, “The Screwtape Letters.” In this class, led by Professor Myles Lynk, we will examine Lewis’ exploration of the strength of personal faith in the presence of God’s love and redemption.
November 17: “A Dazzling Modesty,” the first of two classes on Lewis’ “Mere Christianity.” In this class, led by Father Poulson Reed, we will explore how the book came to be, some reasons for its popularity, and its major themes.
November 24: “Why Faith?” is the second of two classes on Lewis’ “Mere Christianity.” In this class, led by Father Poulson Reed, we will examine aspects of the book that has been called the most important defense of Christianity in the 20th century.

Winter Choir Workshops: Saturdays January 11, 18, 25
Music at All Saints’ is a growth process. You begin working on music that you find compelling, and pretty soon you are working on more difficult music and honing your talents further. More than anything else, we have become a training ground for music in worship. We study together to create something greater than ourselves. You are invited to start on this path with us as a new choir member this January. We offer these Saturday morning training sessions from 9am-12noon in the Choir Room. Contact Scott Youngs to sign up: 602-279-5539 x128 or email@example.com.
