The Anchoress: A Novel by Robyn Cadwallader.
Maureen Sahualla discusses this imagined life of an anchoress in 13th century England. An anchoress was a church position for a young woman who lived in a small room attached to a church, praying unceasing, never leaving her room. Written by a scholar of Medieval history, the story is a psychological profile of a young woman who struggles in her role.

Sunday Forum

Sundays at 9:00 a.m.  Online
Launch Meeting – Zoom
ELCA missionary Rev. Dr. David Brondos joins us from Mexico City to lead Sunday Forum.
This Sunday, we explore the question of how Paulo Freire’s ideas help us transform and renew our proclamation of the gospel in present-day contexts and how the relevance of his work impacts the mission of the church today.

Paulo Freire (1921-1997), was one of the most important figures of the twentieth century in the area of education. His pedagogical methodology focused on critical thinking and “conscientization” as a means to challenge the status quo and promote social justice and equity.

We Need your Help Putting Together Godly Play Stories

Sunday, June 20 at 10-10:45 a.m. in the parish hall
No Godly Play or craft experience required.
Whether you are young at heart or wise in years, or somewhere in between, we need your help putting together miniature Godly Play stories for children and their families at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. Everyone is welcome!
All the supplies to create the mini stories will be provided. These stories will be shared by chaplains trained in Godly Play and given to patients and families as a way of caring for them while they are in the hospital. These parables are a beautiful way to create space for meaning-making, wonder, and play in the hospital setting. Our goal is to create 100 mini parable boxes in June together!
*No Godly Play or craft experience required. There will be art supplies available for small children to join in the fun as well. A great way to earn service hours.
We hope to see you there!
