In this session, we look at a few specific texts, and we'll explore how the Bible has been interpreted. We will ask, do you have to read Scripture as a fundamentalist to take it seriously? This class finishes with a look at how Scripture can be read as part of prayer.By Holy Communion
 
We continue our series on housing with a look at the Veterans Community Project. The video starts with a welcome from co-founder, Brandonn Mixon, followed by an agency overview, tour of a tiny house, and then a testimony from one of the Village residents. The work to end veteran homelessness is providing a new blueprint for housing and homelessness…
 
In the first of a series, we are joined by parishioner Denise Carpenter. A medical and geriatric social worker who has been a great resource for many as they've asked questions like: "How can I care for my spouse, my parent, or other loved one? Can I care for them at home?" Denise walks us through important questions to ask and resources in the St.…
 
The sickness we saw on Wednesday, it's not new. It didn't start two months ago with the election. It didn't start four or five years ago with the last election. The sickness we saw on full and shocking display on Wednesday has been with us since our foundation as a country. This Epiphany, we need to ask ourselves, will we choose another road home?…
 
In the first regular session, We will take a look at the Bible, including discussing modern scholarship on the origins of the various documents in the text. This class picks apart all of the various parts of the Bible and asks, “what does it mean to talk about inspiration and Scripture?”By Holy Communion
 
In this edition of Bible 101, Seminarian Emilee Walker-Cornetta will discuss call narratives in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament—stories in which God asks great things of ordinary people. These biblical stories tend to follow predictable a literary pattern. We’ll look at that pattern through a handful of specific examples and ponder the significa…
 
This Christmas, if you are grieving the Christmas that could have been, perhaps there is an invitation. Next Christmas, will we look backward to all of the picture postcards of our childhood, or will we look forward? Will we work to make sure that in the year to come there has been good news, great joy, for all, yes all the people?…
 
Whatever sorrow you are carrying, whatever grief, know: the message of Christmas is that God chose to show up in some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable. Seems foolish to the world, but there's God's wisdom. God chooses to walk with us when life hurts. That is the only plan.By Holy Communion
 
This month we gathered online with Bishop Deon for virtual Theology on Tap. Following our first ever live-streamed convention, the Bishop talked about the ways the church has already changed. He also spoke about the ways it is changing for the future.By Holy Communion
 
Did you know that Holy Communion partners in issues of housing and homelessness? In 2017, a big group of volunteers helped to renovate the house we own behind the church to help house folks who need housing. Our partners in this work, St. Patrick Center, join us to talk about housing and homelessness in St. Louis, especially in the midst of the pan…
 
The Rector explores the links between the second book of the Bible and liberation theology. Sometimes we think that Exodus is just the story of Moses leading Israel to freedom. The book is longer and richer than just this story. Join in this forum, from our ongoing series looking at themes and books of the Bible.…
 
The Hon. Joe Adams was elected Tuesday to the Missouri House of Representatives for the 86th district (which includes Holy Communion). He is a longtime member of the church, and a historian by training. Note: this video was recorded just hours before the announcement of the presidential election.By Holy Communion
 
This Week at the forum we are highlighting a conversation in Immigration and the 2020 election. We asked a group of theologians and scholars: “why should people of faith care about immigration?” We co-hosted this series with several other institutions. Dr. Marie Griffiths, Director of the Danforth Center on Religion and politics served as moderator…
 
In the wake of a summer of protests over the shocking deaths of Black men at the hands of racially biased police, The Rev. Marc Smith grounds the response of faith communities in Jesus' nonviolent civil disobedience. And, with a contentious national election only weeks away, he offers a way in which we might champion "the better angels of our natur…
 
The Rev. Marc Smith leads this "Bible 101" session on the parables. Based on the work of Bill Brosend, a scholar at Sewanee, Marc talks about the complicated nature of these stories of Jesus, and the way they can still speak to our lives today.By Holy Communion
 
We tend to think of St. Francis as that odd guy whose feast means we get to bring our animals to church for a blessing. But God depends on the odd. This St. Francis Day may God bless us with the burden of being a little odd. May God bless us that we might be a blessing to our fragile planet.By Holy Communion
 
The rector speaks with Susan Norris and Dr. Alison Nash, members of a group of our Pandemic Task Force. The vestry has unanimously adopted the recommendations of the task force not to plan for indoor in person worship until a major change happens with virus numbers. We will be continuing to make our online worship our primary worship, but also will…
 
The Rev. Mike Angell speaks with Noah Bullock and Osvaldo Lapuente from Cristosal. They talk about the state of human rights work in El Salvador and the Central American region. We also reflect together on our shared realities, and how focusing on human rights and dignity can see us through emergency situations when governments are challenging norm…
 
Pandemic, hurricanes, fires, violence. It is only natural that we ask, "Why is this happening?" No book of the Bible better addresses this question than the Book of Job. In this week's Forum video, the Rev. Laurie Anzilotti shares what Job brings to this question in today's context and offers two valuable resources for exploring the book: Stephen M…
 
The question makes us deeply uncomfortable. But our rector thinks that has to be the case. When you look through the lens of systemic injustice, there is no denying that the Church, that those of us who claim to follow Jesus, have contributed to and benefited from the exploitation of women and people of color.…
