Confirmation will be held at Messiah on Sunday, June 11, at 10 a.m.  The Rt. Rev. Brian Prior, bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, will preside.

War, Peace, & the Christian Experience, 5/7,14,&21, 10 am

As followers of the Prince of Peace, is there ever a time when war is just?  Join Peter Williams, member of Messiah, as he draws on his experience as Judge Advocate and Associate General Counsel for the Minnesota National Guard for an engaging and challenging three weeks of discussion on warfare through the lens of Christianity.  Sessions will examine 1) biblical perspective on war and those who wage it; 2) how Christians have wrestled with ethics and morality of warfare; 3) pacifism and how it interacts with Just War theory; and 4) Just War theory in practice: modern conflicts.  Sundays, May 7, 14, and 21, at 10 a.m. in the Loft.
