Advent Retreat: a Rule of Life with The Very Rev. Susan Daughtry.
What does it mean to practice the way of Jesus?
What does it mean for me to practice the way of Jesus?
Anyone who has ever wondered about those two questions is invited to join us for a morning retreat at St. David's on December 4, 9am - 11:30am. A ‘Rule of Life’ is a set of practices that Christians commit to, individually or in groups, to shape the way they live out their faith. Advent, the start of the Christian year, is the perfect time to look back at what practices have sustained our life and what new ways we might be called to step into faith.
Please bring a journal, as you are able. No need to register--just show up! And bring a friend...or even two!

Mark your calendars if you would like to join the St. David’s Book Club for their last meeting of 2021. The book club will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 7th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm via Zoom. After a short 2022 planning meeting, they will be discussing Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson. The book was a New York Times best seller and New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
"Moving forward and backward in time, Jacqueline Woodson's taut and powerful new novel uncovers the role that history and community have played in the experiences, decisions, and relationships of these families, and in the life of the new child.
As the book opens in 2001, it is the evening of sixteen-year-old Melody's coming of age ceremony in her grandparents' Brooklyn brownstone. Watched lovingly by her relatives and friends, making her entrance to the music of Prince, she wears a special custom-made dress. But the event is not without poignancy. Sixteen years earlier, that very dress was measured and sewn for a different wearer: Melody's mother, for her own ceremony-- a celebration that ultimately never took place.
Unfurling the history of Melody's family – reaching back to the Tulsa race massacre in 1921 -- to show how they all arrived at this moment, Woodson considers not just their ambitions and successes but also the costs, the tolls they've paid for striving to overcome expectations and escape the pull of history. As it explores sexual desire and identity, ambition, gentrification, education, class and status, and the life-altering facts of parenthood, Red at the Bone most strikingly looks at the ways in which young people must so often make long-lasting decisions about their lives--even before they have begun to figure out who they are and what they want to be."
Woodson’s writing is exquisite and tells a moving multi-generational story in just over 200 pages. If you've never joined the St. David's book club before, this is a great opportunity to do so!
