Adult Education | Bible Study

Join us as we gather for Adult Education | Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 8:45am and Wednesdays at 7:00pm via Zoom to learn about the word of God through our bible. You are welcome to come to either session – or come to both!  We look at current events and worldly topics and use these to help understand what God has given us through his word to better deal and understand what is happening in our society.

Adult Education Focuses on the words of Christianity and their meanings based on when they were written compared to today’s interpretation.

If you have not been part of the Adult Education classes, this is a good time to start!
 
Having just completed Crossan’s book on the Parables of Jesus, we are embarking on a new study by Joan Chittister on the Beatitudes. We will be working from a collection of articles/columns she published in NCR roughly monthly since Sept 2021. It brings her keen sense of living one’s faith and some very recent examples and issues. I think it will spur good discussion and challenge us all. I have copied the online articles into the attached word document – or you can search for “Joan Chittister Beatitudes NCR” to find the original links. There are hyperlinks in the text that should take you to a news reference for the topic; hopefully they survive the cross platform translations and email systems!

We will start this series on Wednesday March 30 (7:00 pm on Zoom) and Sunday April 3 (8:45 am in person in the Lounge) I anticipate one beatitude per week, but we will see how the discussion goes. If you are a regular or looking to re-engage, this is an opportune time to do so! Please let me know if you have questions. Please forward this to others who might want to join the discussion.
