Faith & The Way of Love: Finding Hope in Troubled Times


Update: Jan. 20, 2022

We have heard from the office of Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, that he has put his travel plans on hold for the foreseeable future, and therefore will not be with us in person for our Feb. 1 Faith & Life event with him.

We will still hold this event virtually on the same date and the same time—Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m., Central time. You can watch Bishop Curry deliver his presentation live at faithandlife.org/livestream.

  • We encourage you to submit written questions in advance, or during the event at the link above, or via email to social@spdlc.org.

Since we recognize that some people may still want to gather to watch this presentation together in a more public space, we will also hold an in-person viewing of the event at St. Philip the Deacon. This will be held on a large screen in our sanctuary, and—as always—attendance is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

Also, we are pleased to share that our independent bookselling partner, Subtext Books in St. Paul, is making available Bishop Curry’s book, Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times, to the Faith & Life community. You may purchase a copy on Subtext Books’ website. Use the promo code “FAITH&LIFE” for free shipping, which will be applied once the order is processed.
