Adult Formation: Praying the Book of Revelation
September 15 & 22, October 6 & 13

The Revelation to St. John is the last book in the Bible, and also one of the weirdest. Some Christians have used it to predict exactly when the end of the world will come, and it’s figured in the plots of some pretty terrifying movies. (Left Behind I, II, and III, for example.)

But what do we make of it in the Episcopal church? What if Revelation is strange and terrifying because the times in which it was written were strange and terrifying? What if God gave us this book not to predict the end, but to help us cope with the present, right now?

As well as plagues, horsemen and a red dragon, Revelation also gives us some of the deepest words of hope in the Bible. Join us as we listen to what God is saying through it.

The Rev. Margaret Holt Sammons will lead the first three discussions; The Rev. Gregory Sammons will lead the final one.

We will have guest speakers on October 20 and October 27.

Beginning November 3, Father John will lead a book discussion on Rob Bell’s What is the Bible?
