Upcoming events at Incarnation!
REV. JOHN SHELBY SPONG
14TH & 15TH
church’s Sanctuary Lecture Series and the Christian Formation Committee
are once again sponsoring the Right Reverend John Shelby Spong, retired
Bishop of Newark. He will preach at the 10:30 am service on Sunday,
August 14th and will lecture on Monday, August 15th at 7:00 pm. His
theme this year will be “Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy” which is
the title of his latest book.
How much of the Gospel portrayal of
Jesus is history? How much is Jewish interpretive portrait painting? By
placing ourselves into the context of the first century world of the
synagogue, the answer to these questions becomes clear. It also opens
the Gospels to a whole new dimension of truth far removed from the
biblical fundamentalism of our day.
Bishop Spong’s sermons and lectures
which include a question and answer period are always thought provoking
and open up new lines of conversation. We hope you will join us.

ourselves to this purpose.

parish serves a diverse congregation of year-round residents, summer
residents, and short time visitors. Members from all these groups
are active participants in the worship, programs, and life of the
parish. Our average Sunday attendance is approximately 350 in the summer and 150 in the
winter. Whether you plan to
