We live in challenging times. Where does faith fit in?
Peter Carnley, an Archbishop from Australia visiting St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, will tackle that one in a series of Lenten lectures starting March 16, 2014, and running every Sunday until April 6, from 10 am – 11 am at St. Peter’s Parish Hall.
Topics for discussion will include:
- Is it truly possible to discuss God?
- Is God fixed or ever-changing?
- Do miracles really happen?
- Why does a loving God allow bad things to happen?
Archbishop Carnley is a retired Anglican Archbishop of Perth, Western Australia, and former Primate of Australia.
In addition to a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Melbourne and a Doctorate in systematic theology from Cambridge University, he received a Lambeth DD in 2012.
Significantly, he overcame a legal challenge and was able to ordain the first women priests in Australia. He was also a founding member of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Mission (IARCCUM). He is married to Ann, they have two children who are married and living in Australia.
You also can explore your faith by joining the Monday evening short lecture series in the Friendly Guild Room. Join us for dinner at 6:30 pm, lecture to follow at 7 pm. Whether you are new to St. Peters or have been visiting for a while all are welcome to explore the themes of the need for God and how he fits into our lives today, the death of Jesus, the power of grace and the Holy Spirit.
