An Uncommon Twist on the Beatitudes

Keywords: forum, adult education, teaching, adult sunday school, milestone.


Each Sunday we gather for a forum that helps us further connect faith with life. Programs range from clergy teaching; expository Bible study; explorations of theology, social concerns, philosophical questions; and very occasionally matters of St. Bart's ministry and mission.


"CONGRATULATIONS to the poor in spirit"? The opening sentences of Jesus’ “sermon on the mount” are among the most quoted and perhaps least understood in the New Testament. Bill Tully leads a Bible study on possible interpretations of the Gospel reading for the week of Epiphany 4.
