What does it mean to be single in a society that tells us we are incomplete until we meet “the one”? Come spend the day with fellow single adult Christians of all ages and types–always single, divorced, separated, widowed–to discuss this and more. We will learn, talk, listen, participate and celebrate with fellow single members of the church, exploring questions such as: What does it mean to be single in the Episcopal Church? Is being single a calling? What does the Bible say about being single? Our keynote speaker will be the Rev. Dr. Katherine Grieb, the Meade Professor in Biblical Interpretation at the Virginia Theological Seminary.
While the day is designed especially for single adult Episcopalians, all are welcome. Continental breakfast and boxed lunch will be provided, and we will end the day with the Holy Eucharist. The “One is a Whole Number” single-day conference will be held on Sat., Nov. 7, 2015, from 9:00-3:00 PM at St. George’s Church, 915 N. Oakland St. in Arlington. There is street parking as well as Metro accessibility. Please register by sending your name, contact information and number of guests who plan to attend to Katherine Spinney by Mon., Nov. 2. Any questions can be directed to the same.
Northern Virginia Young Adult Gathering: On Fri., Oct. 16, from 5:30-7:30 PM at St. George’s Church Parish Hall, you’re invited to gather with other 20s and 30s from northern Virginia. This fall is an incredible opportunity to reflect together with the wise guidance of Dr. Lisa Kimball. She not only led last spring’s clergy retreat, but has also worked with congregations in Minnesota and California, prior to coming to VTS to be the Director of the Center for Ministry of Teaching, as well as a Professor. Space is limited, and spots are first come, first served! So RSVP soon if you can! Dinner is also part of the evening. Let John Shellito or Rachel Shows know if you can be there!
