Episcopal Spirituality intentionally and definitively finds its roots in Jesus’ teaching and practice. In these three forums, Rev. Jim shows us how The ART of Engaging Holy Scripture is a modern, Episcopal way of following Jesus’ practice.

Following these forums, we will start new taehs small groups the week of February 11. (You do not need to attend the forums to sign up for a group). Groups will meet on Zoom and in person with weekday morning and evening groups planned. We’re taking signups now. See below for how to sign up for a group.

What you can expect if you join a taehs small group 

  • Bible study that leads to and prepares for prayer. Prior to coming to Saint Barnabas, Rev. Jim worked with members of his former parish for ten years to write a “Bible study curriculum for Episcopalians,” with the goals of putting the Bible into the hands of the people, and letting the Bible be the starting place for conversations with God. This conversational approach makes all the difference.
  • The curriculum consists of a method for reading, studying, and praying with the Bible, and a process for small groups (7 to 12 people). Each study includes commentary by Rev. Jim that makes the Bible passages more accessible and assists in the taehs method.
  • Taehs has been used at Saint Barnabas for 19 years; it is also used in several other Episcopal churches.

From a participant: “Just reading the Bible I never got much out of it except from a historical perspective, but now I feel it is my story. It is particularly revealing that God speaks to each of us right where we are – thus many different answers from individuals.  I have grown in an awareness of God’s love for us more than I ever knew before.”
