Dear friends in Christ
“The Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s” will pick up Sunday, August 10 at 1:7, where we ask God how to find him and he says basically if you don’t know already, how can I help you? This Bible study is about how to read a book whose genre is allegory, and then about matters of sexual ethics that are used in that allegory. I expect it will run through the end of September, and you are welcome to drop in for any session that you can: Sundays at 10am on the 5th floor, and repeated Thursdays at 12:40pm on the 2nd floor.
The hour draweth near when the Dante Seminar will descend to the bottom of Hell. In just over a week, on Monday, August 18, I will lead a discussion of Inferno cantos 18-34. Anyone who reads the text is welcome to the conversation: in Andrew Hall from 6:15 to 7:45pm.
September classes: On Tuesday, September 16, a series of doctrinal Tuesdays will begin a study of Aquinas on faith. And on Wednesday, September 17, a series of ethical Wednesdays will begin a study of the recent document of the Anglican-Roman Catholic dialogue in the U.S. on ecclesiology and moral discernment. More details on these 6:30pm classes are on the website under “theology.”
May God grant our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ peace, courage, faithfulness.
