Adult Ed: Meeting God in Each Other

We are excited to embark on a new study in May and strongly encourage everyone at St. Thomas to join us! There’s always something to learn as we strive to grow in our faith and love for one another.

MEETING GOD IN EACH OTHER — Anti-Racism Training

Being at the epicenter of the Silicon Valley allows the community of St. Thomas to be a multi-cultural community that embraces people of all races and ethnic cultures. However, sometimes we are unaware of the things that we do that push people away and make them feel less than. None of us want to do that.

Instead, we want to enable the beautiful diversity of God’s creation and walk hand-in-hand into the future of St. Thomas.

[su_quote cite=”the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”]But the end is reconciliation; the end is redemption; the end is the creation of the beloved community…It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of people.[/su_quote]


Wednesday Evenings at 7:30 PM; First session begins May 6th


The Library at Saint Thomas Episcopal Church, see Directions & Campus Map


In opening our hearts up to the miraculous and transformative love that Martin Luther King, Jr. speaks of and let’s come together as a whole community!

Cover Art taken from a mural on a boathouse wall in the town of Clacton-on-Sea (County of Essex in England, United Kingdom) and is attributed to the famous graffiti artist Banksy. The mural was later removed or “buffed out” by the local council due to its “racist” sentiment.

Adult Ed: The Art of Easter

For two weeks in our season of Easter, we are going to study and experience the art of Easter in our Wednesday night Adult Education classes.

Resurrection - Piero della FrancescaArt is a way to access parts of our brain and our life experience that can’t be accessed in other ways. Connecting with the art of Easter will enable us to experience the empty tomb and resurrection of Jesus in a way that book study doesn’t get to.

When we think of the art of Easter we immediately think of oil paintings, but we will also be looking at other forms including: pen and ink, mixed media, water color painting, icons, sculpture, altar pieces and furniture, and tapestries and fabrics. The visual images will include, but not be limited to, the empty tomb, the resurrected Jesus, Jesus with the women at the tomb, Christ triumphing over death, light overcoming darkness, and Jesus appearing to the disciples.

Visiting Art Historian

Art historian, Brandy Bartosh, will come down from Grace Cathedral to lead us through our sessions.

Location Change

We will meet in the church sanctuary instead of the library so that we can use the big screen to experience the many images. See Directions & Campus Map.

Viewing the images is just a first step towards living with the images, praying with them, and even questioning them — which is sure to be a jumping off point for many lively and diverse discussions.
