From the Archives: St. Philip’s Church, Annapolis, Part II

The Rev. Robert Powell became vicar in July of 1971, and the congregation entered a time of rapid growth. By 1976, its budget had tripled, and its membership quadrupled, including some white families. Fr. Powell, active in diocesan affairs, served as president of the Standing Committee, the first African American to hold that post in the diocese’s history.

Theological Reflection – the poetry of Malcolm Guite

Theological Reflection – the poetry of Malcolm Guite

Like the other arts, poetry has the capacity to, in Lewis’ own phrase, “steal past those watchful dragons” of our hardened hearts in such a way that we are able to encounter God afresh. That’s what I experienced among my colleagues last week, when in our biweekly Theological Reflection time we spent an hour simply reading some of Guite’s poems and reflecting on them.

We are going to combine High School Sunday School and High School Youth Group. And, we are not going to meet on Sunday mornings.

C.A.M.P. at Claggett Offers Alternative to At-Home Virtual Learning

There is a growing trend, among families with the financial means, to hire private tutors, or form “microschools” with like-households (“pandemic pods”) that combine resources to hire educators. These trends may exacerbate the already significant education and opportunity gap between wealthy and moderate-to-low-income families, a gap which disproportionately impacts people of color.
