Lent at St. Bart's

Women's Voices in the Church

Sundays in Lent

Women have played a leading role in the Christian faith from the very beginning, yet their role is too often overlooked and their voices too often go unheard. On Sunday mornings throughout March, in conjunction with Women’s History Month and the meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations, St. Bart’s features leading women’s voices within the Church and the academic world as our guest speakers at The Forum at 10 am and preachers at our 9 am and 11 am services of Holy Eucharist.

March 5: The Reverend Martha Sterne, Priest and Writer, The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta
March 12: The Reverend Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman, Associate Professor of Theology and African American Religion, Yale Divinity School
March 19: Dr. Caroline Walker Bynum, University Professor Emerita, Columbia University (The Forum); The Reverend Meredith E. Ward, Associate Rector for Pastoral Care (Preacher)
March 26: The Reverend Dr. Amy Peeler, Associate Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College

Online Classes for Lent

Medieval Religious Drama
Thursdays, February 23-March 30,
6:30-8:00 pm via Zoom

In the early 4th century, Christian bishops banned the theater, threatening ex-communication of anyone who attended the theater during Holy Week. By the early 10th century, however, drama revived within the Church itself, with little plays representing and interpreting the Easter story. Join Professor Larry Welborn from Fordham University as he explores the earliest church dramas, offering insight into the life and faith of Medieval Christians. Selected antiphons and scenes will be presented by readers from the St. Bart's Players.

Saturdays, February 25-June 3, 10-11 am via zoom

The Saturday morning discussion group turns to The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Stories Differently by Dr. Amy-Jill Levine and Dr. Marc Zvi Brettler. Newcomers are welcome! 


Theology and Television:
The Chosen

Mondays, February 26-April 3,
