Celebrate music and the arts at St. Stephen and the Incarnation on Friday, January 23 at 7:30pm. A variety of groups connected with St. Stephen’s will be on the program, including After the Flood (bluegrass), James Laws (baritone), Speakeasy DC (storytellers), Michael Salmon (organ), Lean and Hungry Theater (St. Stephen’s resident theater group), Positive Force (punk), and the St. Stephen’s 10:30am service choir.

Finding Center, St. Stephen’s new Saturday evening contemplative service, takes place every Saturday from 5:30-6:15pm. Spiritual centering is the focus of the service, which includes silence, chant, music, poetry, communion and contemplation. The service draws mostly from Christian traditions, with a commitment to inclusive language. Spiritually uplifting pieces from other traditions (religious and artistic) are also included. Following the service, there will be some light refreshments to facilitate conversation and fellowship. Read more about Finding Center here.
"Jesus: 12 year old boy of color" was the topic of the Rev. Linda Kaufman's sermon on January 4. You can listen to it here.
We Make the Road by Walking is the new book by Brian McLaren; its 52 chapters taken us through the year and help us better understand what it means to follow Jesus. Every Monday evening at 7pm, parishioners gather at the church to discuss the chapter for that week. You are invited to attend any Monday evening you wish.
Faith Matters is our Thursday evening opportunity for faith growth and starts with light fare and ends just after 9pm with the short prayer service Compline, which will be sung with the 10:30 service choir. Anyone is welcome to come to as few or as many Thursday night Faith Matters gatherings as they wish. Topics for each week’s gathering will be announced on our "This Week" page.
