Christian Formation at St. Bartholomew's

Fill your heart and mind . . .

Sunday morning adult education discussion topics range from Bible study to types of prayer and the history of the church. These sessions are held each Sunday morning at 9:30.

During 2015, Fr. Andy has been leading the adult class is a review of the major stories of the Old Testament and the types of prayer and how this can expand our closeness to God. Led by members of the congregation, in 2012 the focuswas on the five largest world religions – Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. It is the intent that by providing an understanding of others' beliefs and values we may come to a better understanding of our own beliefs and values.Our Rector stated in a recent newsletter article, that we may judge beliefs but not people. We cannot judge others’ beliefs if we do not understand them.

Spiritual formation activities have included Centering Prayer, a Healing Prayer group, and our yearly retreat in September at Shrine Mont (a conference center of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia).
