We love babies and children to participate on our worship and fellowship at Redeemer.  To accommodate parents and grandparents of infants and toddlers in the sanctuary, we have some gliders.  These provide a comfortable and rocking experience for the children and adults.

New Book on Spiritual Formation by Redeemer’s Rector The Rev. Dr. Craig Stephans

The Anglican House Media Ministry recently released To Be Silent: The Too Busy Church by the Rev. Dr. Craig Stephans.  To Be Silent promotes the spiritual formation of readers through the means of grace of spiritual disciplines with an emphasis on the practice of silence in the Lord’s presence.  The book includes contributions by over a dozen Anglican leaders writing on the value of the spiritual practice of devotional silence.  Readers will come away inspired to seek the Lord and to renew their spiritual disciplines.

At the recent annual synod of the Anglican Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic, Rev. Dr. Stephans led a workshop on the topics of the book.  The recording of the workshop can be accessed on our diocese website or via the Church of the Redeemer podcast here and on iTunes.

To Be Silent: The Too Busy Church is available on Amazon and at Church of the Redeemer.
