FORUM – Saint Michael Chapel
The basic theme for the Forum this fall is “Faith and Society”. Bob Dannals will open the series for the fall, Miguel Solis, DISD School Board, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, and Larry James, Head of City Square, Dallas Police Chief David Brown among others. In addition, The Forum is the venue where regular reports from the Search Committee will be discussed.
ADULT BIBLE STUDY – Coke Activities Room
The Fall and Spring Bible Study classes will look different. In the fall, the theme is “Children of Abraham”, focusing on the patriarch Abraham and his significance for each of the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Leading the class on Islam is Dr. Robert Hunt, Professor of Christian Mission and Interreligious Relations at Perkins School of Theology, Dr. Richard Cohen, lecturer on Judaism, and Dr. William Power, retired Professor of Old Testament at Perkins School of Theology.
In the spring, parishioners and guest speakers will address the many avenues we have in scripture to understand” Who Is Jesus”?
COFFEE WITH THE CLERGY – Parlor
Each Sunday in the parlor a member of the clergy will be available for casual conversation and fellowship. So grab a bite at the St. Mary’s Guild tables and bring it to the parlor for coffee to visit with our clergy and other parishioners.
FELLOWSHIP – Parish Hall
This new class welcomes all parishioners, and particularly those in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, for fellowship, conversation , and learning about how our faith finds expression in our daily lives. Led by the Rev. Bill Murray and guest speakers, this class offers community, fellowship, and exploration of those values we hold most dear and the challenges to our faith in today’s world.
BOOK STUDIES (WHETHER YOU HAVE READ IT OR NOT) – Chapel Conference Room
There are so many books; so little time. So whether or not you have read the book featured each Sunday, gather in the Chapel Conference Room to hear a presentation on books old and new, fiction and non-fiction. This is not a “review” but is a conversation about the contents and significance of the book for the presenter. You are welcome to make your own observations if it is something you have read – or clarifications if it is something you have not.
