Lay-Learning Opportunity for Advent

November 16, 2021

Over the four weeks of advent the SEI will be running a lay-learning event titled ‘Reading the Bible like an Episcopalian’ which will reflect upon ways in which Episcopalians understand Holy Scripture. The talks will address:

  1. How we settled on the Bible as the last word at the Reformation;
  2. How we pray with the Bible and why Books of Common Prayer came into use;
  3. How the Enlightenment affects the way we read the Bible; and
  4. How we read the Bible in a variety of ways in our own day.


The talks will be presented by Revd Dr Michael Hull, SEI’s Director of Studies and will run on a Monday from 7pm to 8pm via Zoom as follows:–

  1. Monday 29 November: The Bible’s authority: Who’s got the last word?
  2. Monday 06 December: Praying with the Bible: Why a Book of Common Prayer?
  3. Monday 13 December: The Bible in the Enlightenment: Who’s the light of the world?
  4. Monday 20 December: The Bible in the twenty-first century: How do we read it?
