The Adult Forum education and discussion program at St. Peter’s will conclude its study of issues effecting lives of people in Israel and Palestine. On Sunday, February 26th parishioner Jim Bowditch will be joined by two others, Ted Fletcher an attorney from Bar Harbor and Anne Wetzel a photographer, who accompanied him on his recent trip to Israel and Palestine.

On the 26th, at 9:15 to 10:15 am, they will discuss geo-political issues. This three session series will be followed with a more in-depth study during Lent.

The Lenten Program this year, beginning Wednesday, February 29th, will be a joint endeavor with St. Peter’s and St. John Baptist in Thomaston. The program is entitled Steadfast Hope: the Palestinian Quest for Just Peace. This is a program sponsored by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship. The Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, Stephen Lane, has encouraged each Parish in the Diocese to consider offering this program for Lenten study.

St. Peter’s will host this program on Wednesday nights for five weeks at St. Peter’s, beginning on February 29th at 5:30pm. Each evening will begin with a simple soup and bread dinner, followed by a short DVD presentation and discussion.

Workbooks are available for $5.00 and can be ordered at St. Peter’s. You are not required to have a workbook to participate, but it can be helpful. More information will be published prior to February 29th.

The Sunday Forum meets in the Parlor and coffee is available in the Parish Hall. We hope you can join us to grow in your faith in 2012!

St. Peter’s has two Sunday services: 8 am Holy Eucharist—Rite 1 and 10:30 am Holy Eucharist—Rite 2. The Children’s Sunday School meets in the church Undercroft at 10:30 am. All are welcome at the activities and worship at St. Peter’s.
