GRACE TRUMPS!

All Saints Church has been captivated this weekend by the witness of Dr. Serene Jones -- President of Union Seminary and nationally known preacher, teacher and feminist theologian. "Grace Trumps" is the theme of the series of presentations which began on Sunday, March 21st with the sermon, Rector's Forum and an evening teaching. The program concludes Monday, March 22nd with a final presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the Forum on Dr. Jones' central thesis:

God loves this world and desires that suffering be met by words of hope, that love and grace overwhelm, and that something new happens. Serene offers presents an investigation of the myriad ways both individual and collective violence affect one's capacity to remember, to act, and to love, and how those various circumstances potentially challenge theological understanding of how grace is experienced, and even how the traumatic experience of Jesus' death is remembered.
Don't miss the chance to experience for yourself the profoundly moving and grace-filled witness of this important and powerful voice!
