Do you desire a simpler life? If so (even if just a little), you should join the Voluntary Simplicity Church School class this fall brought to you by St. Michael's Earth Ministries.  It is a course of short readings and discussion that explores simple living.  (It does not suggest you should live like a hermit.) 

The class first met Sunday, September 15 and meets Sundays at 9:15 AM in the Old Undercroft (aka, the "Big Room" below the Parish Hall).  The class will continue through Thanksgiving week.
