Wednesday Study

The Wednesday Study group is an adult class that meets to grapple with Scripture or books on faith in a seminar-type study with discussion and sharing. The class meets from 10 – 11:30 am in the chapel.

Wednesday Study is reading Advent with Evelyn Underhill. Church Publishing has this to say:

For generations, readers have found in the writings of Evelyn Underhill the guidance to help them deepen their own interior lives in the Christian mystical tradition. In this lovely volulme, Anglican author and editor Christopher Webber has carefully selected inspirational passages from Underhill’s most significant works, providing readings for every day of Advent and Christmas – and sharing the timeless treasure of Underhill’s spiritual vision.

Got questions? the Rev. Scot McComas has answers. Reach him at scot.mccomas@stmartininthefields.org.

Many in the group also stay for the 12 pm worship service in the chapel, to share prayers and the sacraments of healing and Holy Communion.
