Augustine and his mother, Monica – St. Augustine’s Church, Washington D.C, USA
As a Christian community looking forward to the lifting of pandemic restrictions and ‘beginning again’, we are considering four scenes of the very first beginnings of the Church.
This week we will be introduced to Augustine of Hippo, North Africa (354 – 430 A.D.). He became a Christian out of the witness of his mother Monica, and a leader of the Christians of his era. In particular we will consider how as a Christian he responded to the trauma of the fall of Rome, and what we gain from his witness today.
The sanctuary doors are open for in-person worship (with physical distancing, wearing of masks and forgoing congregational singing), and live-streaming continues. We invite you to join us in prayer and praise. Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. The livestream can be found at https://youtu.be/409hIcVRVuM
