St. Alban's Episcopal Church
This Week at St. Alban's

Monday, October 21, 2019

Dear friends, 
Rev. Julie is out of town on vacation, experiencing fall in all it's beauty.
Seminarian Dani Gabriel presented a sermon on Sunday about the "need
to pray always and not lose heart."
You  can download and read the sermon here.
 

Week 2:
"Not Your Parents'
Episcopal Church 101"


A few things have changed in the Church some of us called our childhood home. And, many deep things remain. 

Join this four-week journey with Dani Gabriel that follows the arc of our own lifespans and development.

 
Class meets in the library at 11:45 am

Schedule:
October 27: Wisdom
               (Scripture,Reason, Tradition, and the Sacraments)

November 3: Awe and Authority
               (Worship, The Book of Common Prayer, and Authority)

November 10: In the End
                  (Death, Resurrection and the great mystery!)

This course is intended for everyone: new to the Episcopal Church; new to Christianity; born in the church and never left; coming home after a long time away – it's all for you!

We are also selling tickets (and raising underwriting funds) for a very special Third Sunday Concert in February 2020:
Violins of Hope: Along the Trade Route
This concert features instruments from a collection lovingly restored violins once played by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. We will feature four violinists playing folk music from various parts of the world. Led by Cookie Segelstein playing Klezmer, other musicians will offer Celtic, South Indian and Middle Eastern tunes.

We are grateful for an initial grant from the Albany Community Foundation, and are actively seeking other grants and advertising to support this amazing show.
