The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Old Fashioned Sunday School


The Dean’s Forum

Sunday, April 24, 2022
Child Hall,10:10 am

Did you know that the Nicene Creed that appears in the Book of Common Prayer has gone through several revisions since the version adopted at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD? One of the differences involves the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The original version of the Creed said simply that “We believe … also in the Holy Spirit.” The version of the Creed in our current Prayer Book says, “We believe in the Holy Spirit … who proceeds from the Father and the Son.” The movement from one version to the other is a fascinating tale of theological evolution and political intrigue. Dean Sam Candler will take us through this tale on Sunday and address how what we say in Church matters to the efforts to repair the relationship between Eastern and Western Christianity.  We look forward to seeing you there.


Old Fashioned Sunday School meets most Sundays at 10:10 a.m. to discuss topics of general interest to the Cathedral community. All are welcome. You will find a light heart, a warm welcome, and good coffee! Old Fashioned Sunday School is taught by Canon George Maxwell.


 


Making All Things New: Tracing the Thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Winter/Spring 2022

The twentieth century Jesuit scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin believed that our salvation lies in becoming one with the universe. He saw divine incarnational energy at the heart of evolution and the birthing of Christ (which he called Christogenesis) as the emerging personal union of God, human, and cosmos. Teilhard’s thought offers a fascinating reunion of science and religion, which has profound implications for how we see ourselves and the purpose and meaning of our lives. Ilia Delio is our guide. Canon Maxwell is using her books Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology, Consciousness (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2015) and Re-Enchanting the Earth: why AI needs Religion (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2020) as the basis for our class discussions and Sister Delio is also scheduled to be at the Cathedral in person on Saturday, April 23, 2022, to deliver a talk she has titled “Christifying the Universe.” Delio’s books and tickets to her talk are available in the Cathedral Book Store.
