Feminist Readings of the Bible? – Well, Its Complicated! @ St. Peter's School Auditorium (second floor)
Nov 5 @ 10:00 am – 10:50 am
In this series of Bible study sessions, we will devote each session to a close reading of a biblical text through the lens of a particular feminist methodology. Our first session (November 5) will explore the approach of creative midrash – what was the nature of Sarah’s relationship with Hagar? In session two (November 12), we will engage with Lady Wisdom of the Book of Proverbs to look for underlying patriarchal ideologies at play in Proverbs. In our final session (December 3), we will explore a single biblical text from two very different feminist perspectives and will consider the question: what’s the difference between liberating a text and apologizing for a text? Can patriarchal biblical texts be redeemed with integrity? If you would like to prepare before each session, please read Genesis 16 for session one; Proverbs 1:20-28; 3:13-19; 7:6-27 for session two; and Genesis 2-3 for session three. Dr. Tamar Kamionkowski is Professor of Biblical Studies at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Wyncote, PA. [email protected] is the adult education hour on Sunday mornings at St. Peter’s.

All Saints Choral Evensong 4:00 pm
All Saints Choral Evensong @ St. Peters' Church
Nov 5 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Choral Evensong has a rich tradition dating back to the 16th century and has broadened into an art form that appeals to people of any spiritual persuasion in the 21st century. The sheer beauty of the music is well known and provides the listener with an opportunity for respite and renewal. In keeping with historic practice, Saint Peter’s Choir includes boys and girls who are trained at the church’s Chorister Academy to sing on a professional level with adults. The origins of intergenerational choirs can be traced to the Middle Ages when European choir schools trained boys to sing in cathedral choirs of men and boys. This venerable tradition continues to thrive today at Saint Peter’s Church to create a unique and beautiful choral sound.

So many interesting women – and we never hear their names on Sunday morning. We decided to call ourselves Women Who Wonder. Wonder about our spirituality, our differing life experiences, our interests and passions. Wonder about the place of women in society, in the church, in our civic life. All who identify as women as cordially welcome to join the conversation. Upcoming dates: Tuesday, November 14, Monday, December 11. Hours: 6-7:30. 313 Pine St.

Afterward, all are welcome to enjoy snacks & drinks and get to know one another. The Family Service is held in the second-floor auditorium of St. Peter’s School, adjacent to the church. The entrance to the school is in the parking lot off Lombard Street.

Candlelit Compline Service 7:00 pm
Candlelit Compline Service @ St. Peter's Church
Nov 19 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Candlelit Compline Service @ St. Peter's Church | Philadelphia | Pennsylvania | United States
This ancient service of plainchant and contemplative prayer provides an opportunity for silence and reflection in the quiet, candlelit space of St. Peter’s Church. Our daily lives are full of activity and multi-tasking and hurrying. Come join us for a half hour of quiet and calm. What is Compline? The service originated in southern Europe and the Middle East during the first 600 years of Christianity. The music for Compline is based on Roman chant and consists mostly of plainsong, with the incorporation of some polyphonic motets. The 30-minute service is sung seamlessly throughout with only a few spoken parts. In keeping with the earliest practices of the monastic communities, Compline is offered at the end of the day as the quietness of evening settles over the hearts and minds of those gathered. What can I expect? As you enter St. Peter’s Church, you will find a quiet and darkened church lit by candles. You’re joining other people for silence and interior reflection. Feel comfortable to make your own space and allow the ancient texts and chants to enfold you. At the close of the service, the choir retires quietly and the people depart in silence just as they arrived. Who is welcome? People from all ages and walks of life have been drawn to Compline, especially in recent decades. All are welcome—the hip and no-so-hip, religious and religion-averse. Dress comfortably. Come as you are. Allow the ancient texts and chants to enfold you, and depart renewed and comforted. Listen to a one-minute clip of St. Peter’s Compline Choir:

An informal opportunity for conversation based on the NPR series of the same name, this group discusses what they heard on the program. We each listen to or read the transcript of Krista Tippett interviewing someone who traffics deliberately in the big questions of life — could be a physicist, poet, priest, philosopher, or whatever. That interview is where our discussions start — but could wind up far afield while still considering the big question at hand. You can download or listen to the interview online or listen to it on WHYY 90.9 FM Sunday morning at 7 a.m. This group meets monthly at 12:15 p.m. on the first floor of St. Peter’s School. Newcomers are welcome!
