The Cathedral of Saint James


Muslims Through the Eyes of Jesus


The Rev. Kevin Higgins, who preached at the Cathedral last October, will return on Saturday, May 9 to lead this workshop for the Diocese.

Here is the description:

In this three hour seminar we will cover the historical foundations of Islam, as well as some modern expressions: Sunni, Shia, Sufi, and the rise of radical or militant Islam. We will also explore how Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman in John's Gospel might shed light on meaningful relationships with Muslims today. By the end of our time together, we will understand our Muslim neighbors better, and have a clearer picture of how to relate to them as friends and as people of faith.

Marriage: An Overview

Marriage is expected to be a hot topic of conversation at the General Convention in Salt Lake City this summer. A special committee will deal solely with an expected high volume of resolutions concerning marriage. Developments in recent years around the blessing of same-sex unions makes a serious look at the theology and practice of marriage necessary and wise. So let’s talk about marriage...

The Episcopal Way

A Sunday Morning Book Study

As we enter the third part of our Sunday-morning series on Stephanie Spellers and Eric Law's book, The Episcopal Way, we turn from a consideration of how the Episcopal way equips us for encountering the world to a consideration of how "patterns and practices in the church's life that once made sense, now present potential barriers to relationship with the cultures and communities where we live. Please join us on the following Sunday mornings at 9:15am on the 1st floor of St. Margaret's House:

April 26
Chapter 9: Returning to the Via Media

May 10
Chapter 10: Uniting Beauty and Justice

May 24
Chapter 11: Practicing Mutuality with the Other Chapter

June 7
Chapter 12: Falling in Love with God Again

Conclusion: Walking the Episcopal Way.

9:15 am at St. Margaret’s House, 1st Floor
