Upcoming Topics

April 14 – Pastor Karl Krueger returns to St. Peter’s with more on the Lutheran-Episcopalian connection.  A typed copy of a paper written in the 1880s by the German-American historian Julius Sachse was housed in the archives of St. Peter’s in the Great Valley and was recently presented to Pastor Karl within the last year. The paper focused on the ministry of William Currie. Sachse also described a German worship by Henry Mühlenberg in St. Peter’s in 1750. Mühlenberg described the service in his journals but did not name the church. Rereading Mühlenberg’s journals, correspondence, and Halle Reports considering this service clarified several notable aspects of ministry in colonial Pennsylvania. Join him as he tell’s the story of cooperation between Lutherans, Anglicans, and others who worked together for the gospel’s sake in the Delaware Valley.

April 21 – The Green Stewards will help us celebrate Earth Day with a conversation about the environment: creation care and climate change. To get us started, five parishioners will share a wide range of insights and resources they have uncovered through books, movies, podcasts, web sites and groups. Participants will be encouraged to share and will receive a resource list for further exploration and action.

April 28 – Kyle Evans, a chaplain at Episcopal Community Services, will visit St. Peter’s to deepen our connection with this Philadelphia-based organization.

May 12 – We have another round of the ever-popular Stump the Clergy!  Do you have questions about the liturgy, the Episcopal Church’s position on various issues, scripture, what the clergy do in their time off? Bring them to adult formation, where Abigail and Jeff will do their best to field anything you throw at them.

May 19 – Maximus Marlowe, a Liberty University senior from Devon, will present about his research on Welsh immigration to colonial Pennsylvania (including the history of the Welsh Tract), with a focus on the early Welsh settlement and founding of St. David’s Radnor, whose history overlaps with that of St. Peter’s. Last summer, Max was a research intern at St. David’s, and also worked with Susy Baum and Dave Tatum in the St. Peter’s archives.
