Adults

Christian education for adults draws on the resources of our parish and our community to provide a stimulating and informative program of reflection and learning. We seek to provide grounding in the basics of our faith and to reflect on the meaning of these basics for our lives today.

Benjamin H. Latrobe Lecture Series

Each year, St. Paul's hosts a lecture honoring the legacy of architect Benjamin H. Latrobe. Latrobe played a significant role in the design of St. Paul’s Church, which was completed in 1818. Since that time it has been modified, expanded, and renovated, always preserving the basic integrity of Latrobe’s design. The annual lecture typically features an acclaimed church architect and takes place in mid-winter.

Our 2016 speakers, Tom Kerns, FAIA, and Baird Smith, FAIA, FAPT, presented on "Theology Versus Style," Wednesday, January 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the nave. Listen to the 2015 lecture by Roger K. Lewis, FAIA, here.

 

Martha J. Horne Lecture Series

The Martha J. Horne Lectures were established to recognize and celebrate the significant contributions that Dean Horne has made to the education and formation of many women and men for service in the Church. Her efforts to prepare students have been significant and far-reaching. These lectures strive to honor the commitment she made to the Virginia Theological Seminary during her 13 years as Dean and President and to St. Paul's through her long-standing ministry as a Parish Associate. The lecture typically takes place in late winter.

The 2016 Martha J. Horne Lecture was held Sunday, January 31 at 10 a.m. in Norton Hall. This year's lecture, entitled "The Triune Lord," featured Dr. Katherine Sonderegger, the William Meade Chair in Systematic Theology at Virginia Theological Seminary. Find the recording of the 2015 lecture by Dr. Timothy Sedgwick on "The Gift of Anglicanism" here.
