St. Peter's is excited to introduce Indaba Nights, a new four-week series inspired by the South African concept of indaba, used at the 2008 Lambeth Conference as a way to increase understanding and deepen relationships amongst the bishops of the Anglican Communion.
St. Peter’s has its own permanent reminder of what rests at the heart of long-lasting relationships and the building of community. Inscribed on the three-ringed fountain in the Laird Garden is the Hebrew phrase “V’ahavta lo camocha,” which we all know as “And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Indaba is about coming together to discuss topics important to our common life, with the goal of better understanding one another’s perspective and growing as a supportive and loving community.
Indaba Nights is an invitation to increase understanding, deepen relationships, and build a stronger community here at St. Peter’s by spending time together in worship, fellowship, and deep discussion. Each week, we will begin our evening together with Holy Eucharist at 5:30, followed by dinner. Then we will break into course groups for an opportunity to explore and discuss topics important to our common life, and to support and learn from one another in the process. Unlike past dinner & discussion offerings, Indaba Nights offer three courses from which parishioners can choose to participate. We will come back together at the end of the evening for Compline, finishing by 7:45 p.m.
