Who’s up for the challenge?
That’s the question from this month’s speaker. Scott Beigle had a dream from his earliest days in college of one day beginning his own radio ministry. It would not come to pass until he was 41 years of age. Scott's and wife, Brenda's mission is, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:8-9. So how much faith does it take? Scott asks.

January 6, 2011 -- Fr. Michael Petty, Associate Rector for Adult Education (Bio)
In the Anglican tradition January 6 is celebrated as Epiphany. Epiphany is the climax of the Advent/Christmas Season and the Twelve Days of Christmas. The term epiphany means "to show" or "to make known" or even "to reveal." In the Anglican Church we remember the coming of the wise men bringing gifts to visit the Christ child, who by so doing "reveal" Jesus to the world as Lord and King. It is this very important calibration that Father Michael talked to us about, “Sharing in the Eternal Purpose of God: Evangelism Bootcamp” (Listen)
