An Alternative Orthodoxy: The Legacy of St. Francis
Sundays, September 17-October 15, 9 a.m., South Parish Hall
As we prepare to celebrate St. Francis Day with the "Blessing of the Animals" the first weekend of October, join us as Franciscan friar and celebrated author, Fr. Richard Rohr, leads us in a 5-part examination of the teachings of St. Francis that will go well beyond his love of animals.  During this series, Fr. Rohr will introduce us to an alternative orthodoxy rooted in Franciscan theology and practice, that is both biblically grounded, but largely lost on contemporary Christianity.   Each session will include a short DVD presentation followed by a moderated discussion.  For more information contact the Rev. Chris Harris858-487-2159.
