Beginning on Thursday, May 18, our Thursday morning Bible Study will do something different for the summer. This year we have studied the books of Revelation, Ephesians, Philemon, Acts, and the Gospel of St. Mark. Beginning May 18th, we will begin studying the History of Christianity, an introductory seminary course covering the spread of the Christian Gospel from the Book of Acts through the 20th century. This is basically the Church History course that I taught when I was at the Anglican School of Theology, less the research papers and the tuition. There is a recommended (but not required) text. Please come and learn about the missing churches of Asia and Africa and much more fascinating information.

Jesus tells us to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves, and he tells us over and over again not to be afraid (Matthew 10:31, Mark 5:36, Luke 8:50, John 14:27). There’s no confusion about what Jesus is telling us, but it often requires courage to embody it in the real world. Again and again, we become afraid, and mired in that fear, we turn against Jesus and one another. This age-old cycle of fear and hatred plays out again and again in our broken world, in sickening and shocking events like the massacre targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual…
Rev. Joy Daley and a number of St. Thomas parishioners joined together at the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration for a NOH8 photo shoot. Celebrity photographer Adam Bouska came to the Dallas area to capture the fight for marriage equality and take a stand against discrimination and bullying of all kinds.
