Group Discussion on Being Mortal
Eben Carsey, MD, MDiv, is offering to facilitate a group for discussion and personal sharing regarding Being Mortal, a book by Atul Gawande, MD, and the issues that this book raises in our lives. The group will meet 8:30 to 9:30 am on Sundays, Oct. 9th through Nov. 13th. If necessary, the larger group may break into smaller groups to facilitate inclusion of everyone in the discussion and sharing. A rather long NY Times review of the book can be found at http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2015/01/08/better-way-out/ . A shorter review can be found at http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/17/arts/being-mortal-by-atul-gawande.html?_r=0 .

Summer Sunday School
Beginning June 5th (we'll take a break on Memorial Day weekend!), we'll be inviting kids to join us on the lawn for Summer Sunday school, where we'll read a story, sing a song or two, string some beads, and do a simple craft. No need to sign up; all kids 3 and up – and parent volunteers! – are welcome.

The solar project for St. John's will now have its own section on the St. John's web site at www.stjohnsboulder.org/solar . This page has been updated with extensive information on the solar project, including a very interesting time-lapsed video showing the construction project, as well as a link to a set of static images. Watch this space and visit the page often for project updates.

Teens and Parents of Teens
Saturday Nights @ 5:00p.m.
Come Join Us...
for an evening of fellowship and discussion
followed by Eucharist
Teens will gather to discuss A) scripture of the week, B) a church teaching, or C) a contemporary issue, or some combination of these. This group will also serve as preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation scheduled for October of this year when Bishop O'Neill visits St. John's. (Youth Room)
Adults will meet together upstairs in the Library for their own guided discussion and fellowship. Adults topic will sometimes be in sync with the teens, other times we will have a unique program. As a fellowship hour, we will spend time getting to know each other, exploring our common challenges and spiritual needs. (Library)
And, of course, there will be snacks for Teens and Adults.
After our discussions, the groups will gather together and celebrate the Eucharist. (Youth Room)
We will meet every Saturday from February 27 - May 21 except for Palm Sunday and Easter weekends.
