Learning Archive - 2005 Programming
Through the years many opportunities for learning have been offered at Church of the Redeemer. We are keeping track of what has gone before as a window into the life of the community. Here are 2005's offerings.
In Lent 2005, Thursdays were film nights at Redeemer. Stephen Reynolds, Senior Associate Priest, introduced his successful Faith on Film series with the screening and discussion of these five films:
A Man for All Seasons (1966), starring Paul Schofield, Wendy Hiller and Leo McKern.
The Diary of a Country Priest (1950), starring Claude Laydu, Jean Riveyre and Adrien Borel.
Winter Light (1962), starring Ingrid Thulin, Gunnar Björnstrand, Max von Sydow and Gunnel Lindblom.
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), starring William Defoe, Harvey Keitel and Barbara Hersey.
Babette's Feast (1987), starring Stephane Audran (Danish and French with English subtitles).
Three separate courses of four sessions each hosted by our Incumbent were offered. Each session started with a shared meal followed by Bible study and discussion of the theme for the evening.
In The Beginning
This four-part series for newcomers began at the beginning by examining basics about the Church of the Redeemer, Anglicanism, the Liturgy, and faith.
Was the Word
This series explored key themes in our spiritual lives: Sacramental Living; How to Read Scripture; Approaches to Prayer; and Social Justice: How You Can Make a Difference.
And It Was Good
The third course looked at what it means to be a member of the Church of the Redeemer through four themes: Popular Tunes and Sacred Songs, We are a Paschal People, The Evangelist Within, and Bread for Your Journey. These workshops were held at the Duke of York Pub.
We took a virtual tour of PWRDF projects in Bangladesh with Paul Kingston, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto Scarborough. As past Vice-President of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund Board, Paul introduced Bangladesh from a development perspective and reported on the work of three NGOs (non-government organizations) with whom PWRDF is a partner: a residence and primary school for children from brothels in the city of Jessore; a women's bookstore and empowerment program; and a community development program for some of Bangladesh's indigenous peoples. The presentation featured photographs and information slides from Paul's extraordinary trip.
