The God Corner: Embrace the Journey, February 24 - March 31   

As Christians, we’re all heading toward glory.  In fact, one of the things every human has in common regardless of country, language, political persuasion, favorite team, is that we will all one day die.

However, in spite of this universal inevitability, we tend to avoid the subject of death and dying. Even though we celebrate Christ’s death every week in worship, our own death is often the elephant in the room.The Victorians were known for avoiding sex and being preoccupied with death – today it’s the other way around.
 
One of the reasons we don’t like to talk about death is because it can appear to be so complicated and depressing. We don’t want to think about living wills, and last wishes, and confusing medical procedures. However, the truth is that preparing well for death can bring tremendous peace and comfort. Not only can we be prepared for end-of-life decision-making, but we can also have those crucial and meaningful conversations with our loved ones that ensure we’re all on the same page. Honestly, this conversation can be one of the greatest gifts we can give those we care about the most. 
 
And so…for those who are coming down the home stretch of life, as well as those who have aging parents and grandparents, we warmly welcome you to Embrace the Journey, an extraordinary class from Anglicans for Life. Taught by our own scholar-in-residence Bill Hyer, this class not only provides a theological foundation for understanding death and dying, but it also equips us to confidently navigate the legal and medical decisions that most of us will one day face, for ourselves or for a loved one. Ultimately, as we approach Ash Wednesday and Lent,  we can learn to embrace the great biblical truth, ‘You are but dust, and to dust you shall return.’ 
 
Regardless of what season of life you’re in, younger or older… this is one class you won’t want to miss!

The God Corner: Leading the Way on the Four Corners, September 9 - November 18, 2020

Our Wednesday discipleship class this fall will be The God Corner: Leading the Way on the Four Corners. This class arose from a preaching series developed by many local churches uniting together to form Mission: Charleston, with the aim to stand Biblically for Gospel Driven Reconciliation. The leaders of this group are all very orthodox Gospel-driven pastors. Our clergy took their curriculum and expanded it a bit, to create The God Corner. Each class will have a clergy member as teacher, with a reflection by a special guest.
