Harmon to Lead Class on Ephesians
Canon Theologian Kendall HarmonOne of the best ways to seek to live into Bishop Lawrence’s vision of making biblical Anglicans for a global Age is to develop parishioners with more theological depth.  As one means toward this end the Diocese of South Carolina is offering an eight week teaching course on the book of Ephesians every Sunday from January 20th to March 10th. The class will be taught by Canon Theologian Kendall Harmon in Doar Hall at St. Paul's Church in Summerville from 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. with a lecture presentation for the first hour, followed by a half an hour discussion on the presented material. For those only able to come for an hour there is a break provided for that purpose at 7:30; and there is also child care available.  The class is co-sponsored by St Paul’s, Summerville and Saint Timothy’s, Summerville/Moncks Corner.
The class will use the recommended resource of John Stott’s Commentary on Ephesians “God’s New Society” which is available in paperback.  It is recommended that prospective attendees purchase their own book and bring it as well as their Bible to class.
