Meister Eckhart: Finding God in the Ground of our Being

Although he lived in the late 1200s, Eckhart's invitation to find

God within ourselves and in the world around us holds power

for spiritual seekers today.  Join us for this online course, sent

to your email every Monday in Lent and done at your own pace.

For those wanting more conversation, join a Zoom group on 

Tuesdays at 9:30am, starting February 23.  To receive the 

study in your email and to get the Zoom link, email Melinda Hall.


Dwelling in Light- A Study of Icons

Join St. Mark’s Associate for Parish Life Craig Dressler for this five-week study of icons. This study will take place on Zoom, Monday evenings at 7:00 P.M. beginning February 22. We will use The Dwelling of Light by Rowan Williams to guide our discussions. Archbishop Rowan Williams shows participants of all Christian traditions how to understand and interact with four classical icons depicting Jesus. Contact Craig Dressler for more information.
