In 1963 John A. T. Robinson published a paperback book called Honest To God. In it, he introduced the work of three 20th Century theologians to the laity of the church. For some, the effect was startling. In three forums, concluding this Sunday, Geoffrey Hoare takes each in turn and discuss one or two themes from their work. October 21, Paul Tillich.

Rector’s Forum & Special Parish Meeting

Vestry Meeting Highlights – October 17, 2018
By Laura Ingersoll, Senior Warden
Having had three opportunities to consider, discuss, and amend them, and following notice to and comment by parishioners, the Vestry unanimously approved the proposed 2018 parish bylaws to be presented to the parish for adoption at the October 28 Special Meeting. (The proposed bylaws can be found here.)
Vestry Member Tom Gustafson reported on the Adult Formation program, which centers on the weekly Parish Forum. The Vestry took note that the Forum is not a series of ad hoc presentations to “inform” parishioners, but a very carefully thought-through program that aims to “form” us by engaging us in exploring aspects of our cherished traditions of faith, reason, and tradition. Rector Geoffrey Hoare expressed confidence that anyone working through a two-year cycle of Forum programs will have undergone a significant Adult Formation. The Vestry expressed appreciation for Ed Roslof, Associate Rector Jim Quigley, and those who assist them in the program.
