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.
Reclaiming Jesus: A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis.
“We are living through perilous and polarizing times as a nation, with a dangerous crisis of moral and political leadership at the highest levels of our government and in our churches. We believe the soul of the nation and the integrity of faith are now at stake.”
So begins a statement of faith issued earlier this year by a number of Christian leaders, including our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. In Adult Sunday School this fall we will study and discuss this statement, including the six tenets of belief it outlines, and what those beliefs say we must embrace and reject. The full statement is posted on the website under Notes from Sunday school
All teens and adults are encouraged to come join the discussion. We’ll meet in the Founders’ Room beginning at 9:30 a.m.
