Sunday, July 31st with Gary Hall
Transition is all around us. America is facing a contentious presidential election. All Saints prepares to welcome its next rector. The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles will choose a new bishop diocesan in December. Leadership change is afoot everywhere.
The question of succession is vital for all our political and ecclesiastical communities. We want our leaders to maintain continuity, bring change, and exemplify the values of the groups to which we belong. Succession was, if anything, even more important to William Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Many of his most familiar plays turn on the problem (threat or promise) of who will next occupy the throne.
Gary Hall – former All Saints staff member, cathedral and seminary dean, and teacher of English and Theology—will bring some Shakespearean passages to the Forum, exploring how in this 400th anniversary year of Shakespeare’s death we can learn from our great poet how to live into, and thrive in, a year of multiple transitions. Don’t miss Games of Presidents, Rectors, and Bishops: Shakespeare on the Problems and Promises of Succession — Sunday, July 31st at 10:15 a.m. in the Forum.
Gary will also be in the pulpit at 9:00 and 11:15 preaching “Eat, Drink and Be Merry.” Don’t miss this end-of-July Gary Hall Double Header and the chance for both education and inspiration.
