Becoming Beloved Community History Project: 1865-1900
Last fall, a group of Doers began researching the history of St. James’s through the lens of race, a few decades at a time. This time, they are asking questions like, what was the parish’s involvement in Reconstruction? This series will also include presentations from local and church historians, as well as viewings of the recent PBS documentary “How the Monuments Came Down.”
December 1 to December 15
Embodying the Incarnation
Our Advent series will be led by St. Jameser Sarah Eck, licensed yoga instructor and leader of St. James’s Community Yoga, and the Rev. Hilary Streever. We will explore traditional and new ways to pray with and through our bodies as we encounter again the story of the mystery of the Incarnation.
