Prayer and the sacraments have been the lifeblood of Christian growth from the beginning and on through the Reformation. What do they mean for us as Anglicans? Join us Sundays at 3:45pm at the Resurrection House (811 North Carolina Ave. SE). Contact Shawn Honey.
Confirmation is an Anglican custom in which baptized Christians publicly affirm their faith in Christ before the Bishop. It’s open to youth and adults alike. If you’re interested in being confirmed by Bishop Steve Breedlove on Saturday, October 17th, contact Shawn Honey.
The men’s weekend away will be October 17-18 at Katalou. The focus will be on prayer, both collectively and individually. Come for a restful break from the city, fellowship with brothers, and communion with Christ. RSVP to Nick Ellington. Cost is $10.
The next Men’s Dinner will be on Monday, October 12, at Christ our Shepherd Church from 7 to 9 pm. Bryan Wandel, one of our pastoral interns who will be joining the Brookland church plant next month, will speak on the Lord’s prayer. Dinner will be provided for free. RSVP to Andrew Evans.

2015 Parish Retreat with Matthew Mason
We are hope-based creatures. How we live now is shaped by what we think will happen later. If we don’t grasp that the future is certain and the best is yet to come, our lives will be little more than anxious fidgeting until death. But because Christ has risen and will come again, we can have a realistic hope for the future in a way that profoundly affects our lives now.
Matthew Mason lead three sessions at the retreat:
The Best is Yet to Come…For Sure You may listen or download it here.
The Best is Yet to Come…For the World You may listen or download it here.

For the Life of the World
What is salvation actually for? Is it only about personal atonement, about getting to heaven, or something that comes later? Is it just to have a “friend in Jesus?”
For the Life of the World (FLOW) is a series that explores the deeper meaning of our salvation in seven short films (15-20 min). The Church of the Resurrection will be using this series in our community groups (RezGroups), annual retreat, and our preaching ministry this Eastertide, March 29-May 24.
Here are three options for how you can see the films:
1. Watch & discuss FLOW in your RezGroup weekly during Eastertide.
2. Host a FLOW discussion group in your home, or attend one in someone else’s home. (Contact Liz Laird to participate: firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. View FLOW on the big screen at Christ our Shepherd, and discuss with the Rez staff:
7 pm Sun 3/29–Episode 1
7 pm Weds 4/8–Episodes 1 & 2
7 pm Weds 4/15–Episodes 3 & 4
7 pm Weds 4/22–Episode 5
7 pm Weds 4/29–Episodes 6 & 7
