Compline for Candlemas
The Grace Church Compline Choir will offer a service of sung compline in the nave on Sunday, February 5 at 6:15 PM. Please come and join us for a time of prayer and contemplation. All are welcome. Note: there will be no childcare available.
Come and learn about C.S. Lewis, the man, and begin exploring his work. On Sundays in February, Dave Westfall will lead us in exploring who Lewis was, and the legacy he left in his work. We’ll also take a look at the symbolism contained in the Narnia books.
This study will help prepare us for the upcoming joint effort between Grace and Brenau, a series of lectures entitled, “Love letters to Jack; Love Letters to God: an exploration of the works of Joy Davidman and CS Lewis” on March 23 and 24. (watch for more information) Join us for the Sunday Forum at 9:30 AM in the parish hall.
