The Word Among Us: The Scriptures & Our Lives
St. Paul’s Adult Forum Series concludes at 10 a.m. in the Dining Room:

Dr. John Spencer, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, John Carroll University, will lead a Part 2 of the session entitled Birth Stories or No Birth Stories? – A Discussion of the Birth of Jesus in the Gospels. The theme of variety will continue as we look at the two gospels that do have birth stories and see the differences even between them. Again, we will look at the reasons for the differences and see how the “theology” of each writer impacts the story that was told. The result will be a better understanding of the gospels’ messages and of the Christmas “story.”

All are welcome!
