ACTS II: Becoming the New Apostles
ACTS II is our sequel to the Book of Acts in the New Testament. It is our story today as we seek to follow Jesus Christ in a confusing, demanding, often hostile world. Believing that training is essential, we are embarking on a journey, similar in many ways to a lay seminary, which will lead us to understand our role as new apostles, literally “sent ones.” So far we have studied the early church and the scriptures in Acts, our Reformation heritage, messages of the Hebrew prophets, and spiritual formation.
New Apostles Looking Ahead to the Journey
Our Acts II New Apostles series is now beginning an in-depth dive into social and personal issues that we confront in today’s world. Join us for the remaining offerings in our Lenten series, meeting in Pope Hall on Sundays from 9:45 to 10:45am. …Read more here…

Now in its third year, “Fireside Chats with The Mystics” continues to be a group which welcomes newcomers—whether one time visitors or new weekly participants! The meetings are designed so that each session stands alone, with no need for preparation nor prior knowledge nor book purchase. Join us on Tuesday evenings. In upcoming weeks we will let the wisdom of Santa Fe’s patron saint shape our time together, using a book called “Praying with Saint Francis.” Our time is spent in meditation, conversation and holy friendship. While weekly meetings are the usual schedule, because of holidays we will not meet on November 21, December 19, December 26, January 2. Rev. Linda Loving in the informal convener of the group and shares leadership with other group members; contact her for more information: email@example.com.
