Who Was Mary Magdalene?
Saturday, July 23, 2016
Optional Noon Day Service
To celebrate the Feast of Mary Magdalene, Saint John’s Episcopal Church will host a discussion about the woman known as “the apostle to the apostles.” What do the New Testament stories say? The Gnostic Gospels? What are the legend? Wife to Jesus? Penitent hermit? Manifestation of the Divine Feminine? Why might her legacy have created tension in the early Christian church? Where might history and myth meet?
Saint John's continues to work with families affected by the Valley, Jerusalem, and Rocky Fires. The Valley Fire Fund has given assistance to more than 1000 people affected by the fire with help with food and gas, rental deposits, lot clean up and repair, as well as helping with various needs of families as they cope with rebuidling their lives. Thank you to the Episcopal Relief and Development Agency, the Diocese of Northern California, and to the many churches in Northern California and around the country who have contributed to our fire relief efforts.
We are very pleased to announce that the Rev. Delia Fay has agreed to be our long-term supply priest. Mother Delia will usually be with us on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. She drives from Chico to Lakeport. Welcome Mother Delia!
