THE BIBLE AND THE IMAGINATION OF C.S. LEWIS with Dr. Michael Ward

Join us for the annual fall Bible symposium with C.S. Lewis Scholar and author of "Planet Narnia," Dr. Michael Ward. See this video on how he cracked the Narnia Code.

Michael+Ward.jpg

Michael Ward is Senior Research Fellow at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, Texas.  He is the author of the best-selling and award-winning Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press), co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis and presenter of the BBC television documentary, The Narnia Code.  On the fiftieth anniversary of Lewis's death Dr Ward unveiled a permanent national memorial to him in Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey, in London.  He has been described by The Times Literary Supplement, England’s premier literary journal, as ‘the foremost living Lewis scholar’.  Michael’s chief claim to fame, however, is that he handed a pair of X-ray spectacles to 007 in the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough.

T.S. Eliot: A Guided Meditation Through Poetry

From Absence to Fullness: A Guided Group Meditation Through the Poetry of T.S. Eliot

with Eugene K. Garber and Evan Craig Reardon.

Join us on a spiritual journey through a close reading of Eliot’s poems. This is not a lecture-driven group, but a discussion-based one. We will read and respond to the poems, and then listen to and respond to each other. Mutual commitment and the beauty of the Cathedral will be the medium for exploring the poems and for our personal growth.

In the tradition of spiritual journey found in the Gospels and in the writings of mystics, we will move from darkness to light by beginning with “The Hollow Men”, “Ash-Wednesday”, and “Choruses from ‘The Rock’” before we enter into Eliot’s highest achievement of spiritual realization, the “Four Quartets.”

We welcome seekers of any faith, as well as those still seeking a basis for spiritual commitment. Our goal is to discover new ways for thinking about the role of the spiritual in life, and for realizing our vision as we move deeper into it.

Saturday mornings at the Cathedral, October 2019 through May 2020: 10/19, 11/9, 12/14, 1/11, 2/8, 3/14, 4/11, 5/9. Cost for eight weeks is $200- ($150- for students).

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys sing A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols with music for brass and organ beginning at 2:30 PM.

Loved by millions, the Festival of Nine Lesson and Carols is a traditional part of the run-up to Christmas for many families.

The original service was devised by E. W. Benson, the first Bishop of Truro and later Archbishop of Canterbury.

According to his son A. C. Benson (who wrote the words to Elgar's 'Land of Hope and Glory'), his father "arranged from ancient sources a little service for Christmas Eve – nine carols and nine tiny lessons, which were read by various officers of the Church, beginning with a chorister, and ending, through the different grades, with the Bishop."

It was Eric Milner-White, Dean of King's College Cambridge, who brought the service to the masses beginning in 1918. Deciding the Festival would be more uplifting than Evensong on Christmas Eve, he set up the Festival as an annual occurrence at King's College Chapel and achieve instant popularity, spreading his new idea to schools, chapels and churches around the world.

Poetry Without Fear with Diane Cameron

Poetry Without Fear with Diane Cameron

Many of us were fearless poets as children—we enjoyed rhymes, made up limericks, and memorized famous lines of verse. Then, often in Junior High, a teacher scared us right out of poetry—or out of our public love of verse and creation.

But deep inside we live as poets every day—feeling feelings, thinking big ideas and attaching words that tell a tale.

Let’s take poetry back!

In this single class we’ll play with words again in a judgment free zone and experiment with free verse and some fancy forms.

Bring your love of language and your sense of humor—and a notebook or journal to capture our play.

Together, we will write poetry without fear.
Cost of the class is $15-. Email us to register.

Read an article by Diane Cameron.

Organ Recital and Choral Evensong

The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys sing Choral Evensong at 3:00 pm, preceded by an organ recital played by Joe Setzer, Trinity Cathedral, Columbia, SC, at 2:30 pm.

Evensong has been one of the three principal liturgies of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition since 1549. The liturgy is alternately sung or chanted by the choir or clergy and the congregation sings appointed hymns. Appointed psalms are said or sung, followed by readings from Old and New Testaments, punctuated by canticles. Evensong appeals to Christians of all denominations and to those who enjoy choral music. It usually lasts 35 to 45 minutes. All are welcome!
