Keeping Faith in a Changing World with Bishop Mary Glasspool

Join us as we visit with Bishop Mary Glasspool, Assistant Bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the first open lesbian to be consecrated bishop in the Anglican Communion. Bishop Glasspool will talk about her own life, the challenges she has faced, and the sources for the faith and love that sustains her and enables her to lead others.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved HERE.

The Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool serves as Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of New York. Before coming to New York in 2016, she served as Suffragan Bishop of Los Angeles (elected December 2009, consecrated May 2010). She was born on Staten Island, raised in Goshen, NY, where her father, Douglas Murray Glasspool, served as rector of St. James’ Church until his death in 1989, and graduated Bachelor of Arts Magna cum Laude from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA in 1976; earned her Master of Divinity from Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, MA in 1981; was ordained a deacon in June 1981 by Bishop Paul Moore, Jr. of New York; and in March 1982 was ordained a priest by Bishop Lyman Ogilby of Pennsylvania.  From 1981 to 1984, she served as assistant to the rector, and later interim priest-in-charge, of St. Paul’s Church, Philadelphia, moving from there to be rector of St. Luke’s and St. Margaret’s Church, Boston, where she remained until 1992. She then moved to the Diocese of Maryland, first as rector of St. Margaret’s Church in Annapolis (1992-2001) and then, until her election in 2009 as suffragan bishop of Los Angeles, as Canon to the Bishops in the diocese.

Celebration of Epiphany with the Blessing & Distribution of Chalks

Celebration of Epiphany with the Blessing & Distribution of Chalks

Worship at 8 AM, 11 AM, and 6 PM

The blessing and distribution of chalks with which houses are marked with a special logo commemorating the visit of the Magi is an ancient custom that seems to have originated in and spread from Central Europe at the end of the Middle Ages.

On or near the feast of the Epiphany, and conveniently close to the beginning of a New Year, the tradition has been to ask God’s blessing on homes and mark the door post or lintel with chalks that have been blessed for that purpose. The doors are chalked with the initials of the legendary three Magi, and the numerals of the New Year, connected with a series of crosses. The initials C, M, and B commemorate the Magi, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, but also stand for the Latin prayer-request Christus Mansionem Benedicat: “May Christ bless this house.” In this way, the door of a house would be marked as follows: 20+C+M+B+19.

At the beginning of our coffee hour we will bless St. Christopher’s House in this way, but also, chalks and prayers will be available for people to take home. This Epiphany ceremony is a simple but meaningful act of witness which symbolizes Christian willingness to offer hospitality and shelter to the Magi on their journey to Bethlehem, and also, by extension in today’s world, to welcome all and sundry who love or are seeking the Lord’s Christ.

Now We See Her, Now We Don't: Visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Over the ages, people around the world have believed that the Virgin Mary appeared to them, often with specific messages. Famous appearances that remain pilgrimage sites include Fátima, Lourdes, and Medjugorje. Of particular significance to Anglicans are the traditions around Walsingham (Norfolk, England), Yankalilla (South Australia), and increasingly, Guadalupe (Mexico). During Advent we will explore beliefs around the Virgin Mary’s appearance and what these beliefs mean for people today and ask how and where Mary may appear in our lives.

Join us on Sunday morning at 10 AM for a Bible Study on Paul’s Letter to the Galatians

Galatians stands as an eloquent and vigorous apologetic for the essential New Testament message that people are justified by faith in Jesus Christ—by nothing less and nothing more—and that we are sanctified not by legalistic works but by the obedience that comes from faith in God’s work for us, in us and through us by the grace and power of Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Galatians is sometimes referred to as “Luther’s book,” because Martin Luther relied so strongly on this letter in all his preaching, teaching and writing against the prevailing theology of his day.

Many are beginning to explore the ancient Christian spiritual practices, such as fixed-hour prayer, fasting and sincere observance of the Sabbath. What is causing this hunger for deeper spirituality? Brian McLaren guides us on this quest for an explanation of these spiritual practices, many of which go all the way back to Abraham and the establishment of Israel. In the midst of contemporary Christianity, we discover the beauty of these disciplines and the transformation through Christ that each can provide.
