From Idols to Icons...a Pastor's Journey

Opening my eyes to see and experience  God's presence visually. 

Rev. Susan Hartley will lead a 4 week Adult Sunday School class st 9 am in the Gathering Place, from  Aug 11 to Sept. 8  on praying with and discovering the meaning of Russian Orthodox  icons
--considered to be visual scripture and witness.

In 1986, While Susan was in seminary learning about early Christian worship, her husband Richard Fanning at their home in Burlington, Vt. was learning about Russian Orthodox icons and worship (still praying  the  prayers Susan thought were ancient history).  She will share their spiritual journeys of discovering God in new ways.  This will be illustrated by icons, some that  Richard "wrote", some that his teacher photographed in Paris, France that became the subject of a book, and other icons. 

Bring your questions  and share a new way that Immanuel, the Word of God, becomes flesh.  Curious about how?

If you have icons you have collected, bring them.

We meet in the Gathering Place downstairs at 9AM.  Coffee will be available in the Fellowship Hall, so grab a cup before you join us!
