On Sunday, October 6 Prof. James Weiss of Boston College, an Episcopal priest, will describe the changes he foresees which may come from the two new primates chosen in March: the new Pope Francis, and the new Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Jim is a lively speaker, often asked to comment on NPR and quoted in the NY Times. In the worship service, Jim also will preach a sermon on St. Francis. Bring a neighbor or friend on Sunday!
