Welcome to Courage and Faith. The Fall 2014 season is approaching.

  • The Loft / Fall 2014

    Ian Morgan Cron

    Ian Morgan Cron - Every Sunday, Sep 14 - Dec 7, 2014 (EXCEPT Oct 12 & Nov 30)
    The Loft: Sunday Evening Contemplative Worship and Conversation with Ian Morgan Cron
    5:30pm-6:45pm, Parish House Loft, FREE

    Traditional church isn’t for everyone. Some enjoy worship that’s varied and spontaneous, offering contemporary music and conversational talks, where the dress code is blue jeans rather than suits and ties, where faith is talked about more as a journey than a destination, and where silence and reflection are deeply valued. If this is you, then mark your calendar and join us for these special nights.

    Ian Morgan Cron is curator of the Courage and Faith program. He is an Episcopal priest, counselor, bestselling author, and speaker. He serves as adjunct clergy at Christ Church.

    Poet, translator, and editor Christian Wiman explores themes of spiritual faith and doubt. Christian’s poetry collection Every Riven Thing won the Commonwealth Prize from the English Speaking Union and was named one of the New Yorker’s top 11 poetry books of 2010. His latest collection, My Bright Abyss, was completed in the wake of a bone marrow transplant, and is a moving meditation. Joyful, sorrowful, and beautifully written, it’s for anyone whose experience of life and art seems at times to overbrim its boundaries. “There are a ton of people out there who are what you might call unbelieving believers, people whose consciousness is completely modern and yet who have this strong spiritual hunger in them. I would like to say something helpful to those people,” explains Christian.
