    An Evening with Bishop Anne Hodges-Copple 

    Wednesday, November 29
    6:30 PM, All Saints' Hall

    Putting on the “Armor of Light”1 in a Season of Darkness

    As days shorten and nights lengthen, it may seem a different kind of darkness casts its shadows upon our hopes and dreams. Holiday plans anticipate celebrations with loved ones, but daily headlines elicit anxiety and even fear about the future well-being of the people and creation entrusted to our mutual care. 

    In the Christian calendar, the liturgical season of Advent gives us a welcome opportunity to examine the relationship between our confidence in the transcendent power of God’s reconciling love and the uncertainties and hostilities causing division and dissension among neighbors near and far. 

    On Wednesday, November 29our Bishop Suffragan, The Right Reverend Anne E. Hodges-Copple, invites you to join her for a presentation and conversation about what it might look like to be peacemakers, healers, and agents of reconciliation in our own homes and local communities in ways that might change lives and even change the world. 

    Christ Church Charlotte will host this event; all are welcome to attend. The evening will begin at 6:30 PM with a buffet dinner and prayers, followed by the Bishop's presentation. The evening will conclude by 8:00 PM. 

    Register for dinner ($9/adult, $8/senior, $6/child ages 4-12) by Noon on Tuesday »  (No RSVP needed to attend presentation only.)

    Childcare is also available by reservation (no charge) for children ages 10 and under. Please register for childcare by Noon on Tuesday.
