The Tuesday Evening Bible study at 5:30 PM in the Parish Hall will continue with its standard schedule. We encourage all to participate in any of the Tuesday evening programs offered throughout Lent, with the Bible study being one of them. You may jump into Bible study at any time. 

The season of Lent is a time of introspection and preparation. These four Tuesday evenings are an opportunity for prayer and calm reflection. Evening Prayer takes place in the church with candlelight. The service is led by members of the parish presiding and preaching.

Holy Week: A Fool’s Journey led by The Rev. Wilk Miller
February 20 and 27, March 5 and 12 from 7:00-8:00 PM

Wilbert (Wilk) Miller, a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and licensed by the Episcopal Church in Connecticut to preside and preach in Episcopal congregations, will lead these classes. Wilk has served inner-city and downtown congregations in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, San Diego, and New York City and on Philadelphia’s Main Line. He has a special interest in liturgy and the Eastern Orthodox tradition. He and his wife Dagmar are members of St. John’s. (“For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe.” 1 Corinthians 1: 21) Examining the revered lives of the Holy Fools in the Russian Orthodox tradition and the Holy Week texts, we will discuss how God uses the foolishness of our lives to bring hope and love to our groaning world.

PALM SUNDAY (The Foolishness of the Line Running Through Our Hearts): how does God use saints and sinners such as us for holy purposes?

MAUNDY THURSDAY (The Foolishness of the Tools of Our Trade): how can the trifling stuff the church offers – bread and wine, water and the word – make a difference today?

GOOD FRIDAY (The Foolishness of Our Helpless Silence): what gift can we possibly offer amidst our own confusion and anguish, passiveness and silence?

EASTER VIGIL (The Foolishness of Our Holy Storytelling): how can our storytelling invigorate those starved for hope?
