Wednesday Night Lenten Speaker Series:
The Role of a Downtown Parish
Wednesdays at 6:30pm
Feb. 24th-Mar. 24th
Take a tour of downtown Episcopal churches in the South at 6.30pm on Wednesday nights via Zoom. A Zoom link will be listed on the St. John’s website, and in the weekly Eagle email. The discussion will be reflections on pre-recorded interviews John has conducted with five different rectors who have shared their thoughts on the unique mission and ministries of downtown parishes that they serve. In addition to being viewed during the class, the videos will also be released on our FaceBook and YouTube pages, and the St. John’s website.
The Rev. Scott Walters
The Rev. Scott Walters is Rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Memphis, TN. Previously, he was the Rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Little Rock, AR. Before seminary, Scott worked as a carpenter and contractor, which began a curiosity about the way the “built environment” impacts Christian discipleship, especially with regard to stewardship of creation and Jesus’s charge to welcome the stranger. He is married to Ardelle, who is a counselor and faculty member for CREDO, a clergy wellness program of the Church Pension Group. Ardelle and Scott have two children.
