During the Vestry retreat, we talked about how to live into the vision of our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, of being the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement by walking in the “Way of Love,” as well as owning our identity as a “School for Discipleship,” as our Bishop, Chip Stokes, asked us to do.
As we discern our objectives and goals for the current year and position St. Barnabas for future viability, we have some questions for the Congregation that will be helpful in the deployment of our energy and allocation of resources.

Lenten Program -
Becoming Beloved Community
Wednesdays, March 13, 2019 - April 10, 2019
This Lent, the Vestry and the Ministry of Racial Diversity are inviting the Congregation on a journey to commit in new ways to becoming Beloved Community and growing loving, liberating, life-giving relationships across the human family of God. 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the beginning of slavery in the United States. We have the opportunity to consider our own journey and how to work toward healing and change in our broken world. We begin each evening with a light supper of soup, salad and bread at 6:30 PM. The program begins at 7:15 PM and runs until 8:30 PM. If you can’t make it to dinner, you are welcome to come to the Program.

Reverend Valerie's Reveille
The Way of Love - Learn
. I love our Anglican sensibility of not “checking our brains at the door” of the Church. We are called to bring all of ourselves, including our minds, into our relationship with God. In fact, God gave humans the ability to reason and learn, which makes us different and special among all of God’s creatures. We have used the knowledge we have gained since Creation began to bring us to where we are today, with all the modern conveniences of technology, health care and lots of other things that Jesus never talked about!
