    Ian Morgan Cron

    Ian Morgan Cron - Every Sunday, Winter-Spring, 2015 (EXCEPT Apr 5)
    The Loft: Sunday Evening Contemplative Worship and Conversation with Ian Morgan Cron
    5:30pm-6:45pm, Parish House Loft, FREE

    Traditional church isn’t for everyone. Some enjoy worship that’s varied and spontaneous, offering contemporary music and conversational talks, where the dress code is blue jeans rather than suits and ties, where faith is talked about more as a journey than a destination, and where silence and reflection are deeply valued. If this is you, then mark your calendar and join us for these special nights.

    Ian Morgan Cron is curator of the Courage and Faith program. He is an Episcopal priest, counselor, bestselling author, and speaker. He serves as adjunct clergy at Christ Church.

    THE LOFT COMMUNITY HAS ADJOURNED FOR THE SUMMER. WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING AGAIN IN THE FALL!

    Andrew Peterson--Sun, Apr 26, 2015
    Special Guest Artist Andrew Peterson at the Loft
    5:30pm concert, Parish House Loft, FREE

    Join us at 5:30pm on April 26th for a Loft special guest artist! Andrew Peterson has a fairly simple approach to songwriting: He writes the songs that he himself needs to hear, trusting that there are other people out there who might need them as well. And by the tens of thousands, there have been. Peterson’s most loyal fans, in fact, tend to be those who find resonance with the “glowing ache” that permeates his body of work. But it’s never been the ache of hopelessness or despair. Instead, it’s the ache that comes from deeply loving something that has been lost, and from daring to hope that it will one day be restored. It’s the recognition that any pain we now feel is somehow inseparable from the joy that was intended for us from the creation of the world. And it’s the undying hope that that same pain is also a promise, a forward longing, a deposit of the redemption and restoration of the greater joy that is yet to come.

  • Suzanne Stabile/ 5-9 May

    Suzanne Stabile

    Suzanne Stabile--Tues, May 5 through Sat, May 9, 2015
    A week of Enneagram introduction classes, advanced classes and coaching sessions

    Suzanne Stabile is back by popular demand at Christ Church Greenwich teaching a variety of classes and individual meetings. She is an internationally renowned master teacher of the Enneagram, drawing upon her educational background and life skills learned as a mother of four, social worker, and minister’s spouse. Her refreshing teaching style is an unforgettable blend of humor and personal storytelling. She and husband, Joseph, are founders of Life in the Trinity Ministry and the Micah Center in Dallas.

    The Enneagram is an ancient, but newly explored tool that is beneficial for everyone on the personal, interpersonal, and social levels of human existence. It is extraordinarily useful because it works. We each have life experience that has given us a degree of self-knowledge, but the Enneagram offers a deepening clarity, an awareness that comes like a light shining in one's closet. It enables us to emerge with a new appreciation and acceptance of others as the motivations and effective flavors of the nine different personality types are explored. We discover why some people are easier for us to understand and accept while others present a more difficult challenge. The Enneagram is one of the clearest and most accurate methods available for understanding ourselves and those who are important to us. The insight it gives can change our lives, heal inner conflict, enhance creativity, and ultimately contribute to good relationships at home, professionally, and in community.
