Bishop’s Annual Visit to St. Philip’s

Join the Rt. Rev. Kirk Stevan Smith, Episcopal Bishop of Arizona, on Sunday, June 1, at St. Philip’s in The Hills Episcopal Church. The Bishop will preach and celebrate at the 7:45, 9, and 11:15 a.m. services. The 9 a.m. service will include confirmations. At the 11:15 a.m. service, incense will be used.

bishop 2At 10:15 a.m., Bishop Smith will lead a compelling time of spiritual exploration. He has recently found inspiration in Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, “Learning to Walk in the Dark,” and through her work will invite us to reflect on “shadow spirituality.” Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. The Bishop will also draw on the inspiring work of St. John of the Cross and Carl Jung in his presentation.
