Calvary Episcopal Church, East Liberty, invites you to join a theological reading group for Lent this year. The last two years have brought together a broad range of participants into a deep and reflective conversation about both ancient and modern theology, moving from Rowan Williams in 2011 to St. Gregory of Nyssa in 2012.
This year, the group will be exploring a collection of essays by Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957) titled Letters to a Diminished Church: Passionate Arguments for the Relevance of Christian Doctrine. Although perhaps best known for her fictional mystery stories, Sayers was also a renowned theological essayist and her translation of Dante's Divine Comedy is still in print today. From the text: "It is only with the confident assertion of the creative divinity of the Son that the doctrine of the Incarnation becomes a real revelation of the structure of the world."
The group will meet in Calvary's McClintic Hall (the choir room) from 7-9 p.m. on Monday nights beginning on February 18. Please email Jamie McMahon if you are interested, firstname.lastname@example.org. Copies of the book are available in the Calvary Bookstore.
