Sept. 22 – Nov. 17: The Rev. Jim Adams explores Saint Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. Known as one of the most optimistic and encouraging of Paul’s epistles, it was written around 61AD, ironically, from a prison cell. Paul’s faith was deepened during this trying time and his determination to share the Gospel only increased because of his own hardship. He shares with the Christians at Philippi a faith that is robust and joyful, in soaring language that is both realistic and deeply theological.

Jan. 18: The Story of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church – Past, Present & Future
The Rev. Jemonde Taylor – As plans to construct a new stadium, office space, businesses, and housing move forward in downtown Raleigh, the potential for increased flooding, and gentrification, increases. What can we do as faith-filled citizens to mitigate the impact of this construction upon the historically Black neighborhood downstream?
Jan. 25: Hope – The Heart of Judaism
Rabbi Jenny Solomon – Rabbi Jenny Solomon will illuminate how hope is expressed in Jewish tradition using examples from the Hebrew Bible, the Holocaust and the founding of the modern state of Israel. For Jews, hope is a theological stance which enables us to endure and to thrive, especially in challenging times. Hope has been among the most adaptive strategies for the Jewish people through time and space and continues to function as the heart of our people’s faith.
