Sacred Conversations (Adults)
The Adult Sunday School class is one of the liveliest hours of the week at St. Dunstan’s.
The classes are truly sacred conversations, usually led by Tricia or her husband, Dr. Joe Monti, a retired seminary professor of Ethics and Moral Theology.
Topics have included in-depth Bible studies, the intersection between faith and politics, the relationship between science and faith, and the difference between Episcopalians and fundamentalists. We’ve also looked in depth at what our faith says about issues such as immigration, health care reform, and capital punishment. Discussion is always lively. One parishioner calls it the best hour of his week, one that keeps him thinking until he comes back again.
In addition to the Sunday morning class, we also offer a Tuesday morning book study group, and seasonal evening Bible studies. Watch the announcement pages for more details.
Jesus began his public teaching by laying out a blueprint of how his followers are to live, in a way that honors the kingdom of God, not the realm of the emperor. The Sermon on the Mount begins with the Beatitudes, telling us who is among the blessed in the reign of God. It’s not who his listeners expected – the poor, those who mourn, the meek, those who seek justice, the compassionate, the pure in heart, the peace makers, and the persecuted. During Lent we will take a closer look at these teachings of Jesus that turn the world upside down, and discover what they have to say to us today. The class begins Sunday, March 5, at 9:30 in the Founders’ Room.
