‘Anglican’ Christianity: A four-part series in Advent 2022

What does it mean to be an ‘Anglican’ Christian? Over 40 Churches around the globe, consisting of no less than 85 million people, identify themselves as ‘Anglican’. Yet, Anglicans are divided among themselves in terms of doctrine and practice as demonstrated in the most recent Lambeth Conference (Summer 2022). This Series looks to four staples that Anglicans have classically identified as the bases of their belief and behavior to highlight harmony rather than discord. The Series will be offered on the Mondays of Advent 2022 at 7pm (GMT) in four 30-minute webinars, each of which will be posted on YouTube. The Series is meant to be a resource for Anglicans/Episcopalians to use creatively during the Season of Advent, for example as a refresher course for individuals or a conversation starter for church groups, with discussion questions at the end of each webinar.

Holy Scripture: ‘all things necessary to salvation’ and the rule of faith (Monday 28 November)
The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds: symbols and statements of faith (Monday 5 December)
The Dominical Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Monday 12 December)
The Historic Episcopate: a universal and locally adopted means of unity (Monday 19 December)

Presenter: Revd Dr Michael Hull, Director of Studies and Tutor, Scottish Episcopal Institute, Edinburgh. Time: 7pm to 7.30pm (GMT) on Monday evenings in Advent 2022. Registration is free. All are welcome; register here.

Lunch and Learn with the Rev. Dr. John McGinty

It is said that the Desert Fathers saw in these words the goal of human life. How do we move toward that goal? Each year the season of Advent invites our appreciation both of the progress made on the way and the path lying ahead. This is tandem-work: God’s and ours. We wait in faithfulness to the God of Advent.

Register Here

When: Four Wednesdays:
November 30, December 7, 14, 21

Time: 12 Noon to 1 p.m. online via Zoom

Instructor: The Rev. Dr. John McGinty, currently Rector of the Church of Saint Matthew in Worcester, Diocese of Western Massachusetts, and former Canon for Formation and Dean of the Mercer School in the Diocese of Long Island.

Fellowship in Faith

Sundays at 10:15am in Mercer

In Sunday School, children will immerse themselves in the drama and excitement of the Exodus story in multisensory, age-appropriate ways. Together, we will explore the stories of Moses’s birth, youth, and journey out of bondage into freedom. Through art, music and play we will reflect on God’s love for all people, and imagine ways in which each of us can respond to and share that love. We will talk about courage, faith, gratitude, discipline, forgiveness, and the dignity of every human being. Friends are always welcome!

Contact ksalisbury@incarnationgc.org with any questions.

Neighbors Being Neighbors on Thanksgiving

Every year on Thanksgiving Day, the Cathedral of the Incarnation’s Neighbors being Neighbors Ministry leads volunteers in preparing and serving a traditional Thanksgiving feast on the street in Hempstead. This year they continued the custom. Trays of traditional Thanksgiving dishes: turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and vegetables, were prepared by our volunteers and then loaded on the Cathedral Bus - which became a bountiful buffet station for the day!

Adopt-A-Family

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. - Proverbs 18:16

In a cathedral church dedicated to the human incarnation of our Lord, Christmas is a special time of year. As we look to the close of the church year and prepare for the beginning of a new one, it's once again time for Adopt-A-Family.

The Adopt-A-Family program is an annual effort of the Cathedral congregation and so many of our sister Episcopal churches around the diocese to provide gifts and necessities to needy families. As always, your generosity will bring joy to the patients and clients of St. John's Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway and, for the first time, our very own Cathedral Neighbors Being Neighbors ministry.

Please sign up in person at the back of the cathedral on Sunday before or after service.

Please also be sure to wrap the gift with holiday wrapping paper and LABEL the gift with the person's name (found on the Google Doc sign up form). You may leave the wrapped and labeled gift at the rear of the cathedral with an Adopt-A-Family volunteer from now until Sunday, December 11th.

If you have any questions, you can email Kyle Sabo at kyle@ironduke.me or Carolyn Ver Pault at mlvpsmom@aol.com.

A Prayer for Advent

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
