Final workshop on “Reclaiming Jesus” will meet at St. Andrew’s

The ninth and final “Reclaiming Jesus” workshop will take place Monday night at 7:00 PM in Puddicombe Hall downstairs at St. Andrew’s. As always, it will feature spirited discussion, music, and an exploration, rooted in scripture, of what it means to follow Jesus today. Tom Egnew and Dave Tinsley will facilitate this week’s discussion.


The focus of our work together has been the manifesto “Reclaiming Jesus,” signed by twenty-four leaders of a wide range of denominations across the country, including our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, whom you just heard preach in Seattle and Olympia. You can find out more about the “Reclaiming Jesus Movement” by clicking here.

St. Andrew’s will be working together with interested participants from three other local churches to explore what our role should become in this time of divisiveness.

The series has been led by clergy and experienced facilitators drawn from the lay leadership — for St. Andrew’s, it will be our own Tom Egnew and Dave Tinsley — and the emphasis will be on respectful listening and on an honest exchange of views concerning the issues raised in the document. We will be using the curriculum designed by the “Reclaiming Jesus” team. Even if you have missed the previous sessions, please join us for this wrap-up!

Mark your calendar and plan to join us for any and all of the sessions.
