INVITATION TO INQUIRY
If you're interested in learning more and going deeper, consider our annual Invitation to Inquiry. In place of a traditional newcomers or inquirers class, which is based on a standard classroom model of students being lectured by a teacher, Invitation to Inquiry establishes lasting relationships, builds community, and helps us deepen our own spiritual lives as we explore our faith and identity as Episcopalians. We also explore how the Church's teachings and traditions relate to our real-life challenges and anxieties. Invitation to Inquiry is especially helpful for those who are new to The Episcopal Church or new to St. Timothy's, but anyone who wishes to join is always welcome.
Invitation to Inquiry takes place annually, or as needed. The meetings are primarily based around "Symposia" on Wednesday evenings which take place in parishioner's homes. The first Christians met in each other's houses where they gathered to break bread together. Following the meal, they often shared in a "symposium" during which wine was poured, meaningful topics were discussed, and words of wisdom were shared. At our symposia, we gather in each other's homes (though no one is ever required to host) to share a meal, get to know each other, make Eucharist with one another, and then have significant time for discussion.
Invitation to Inquiry is a great way to meet other parishioners and explore our faith together.
