Please consider joining us for the new sessions of our midweek ZOOM class. Beginning of Tuesday, 5 May, we will be reading Cynthia Bourgeault’s book The Meaning of Mary Magdalene. Mary Magdalene is probably the most famous character in the Bible about whom the least is known. Bourgeault’s book seeks to address that, starting by look at what the Bible does say about her and how church tradition, art, and legend have added – and frequently distorted - the picture we have of Mary. In addition, Bourgeault introduces her readers to the The Gospel of Mary Magdalene and other lost gospels and demonstrates how these lost writings have altered our perspective of her. What has emerged in recent years is a serious re-evaluation of Mary Magdalene’s place among Christ’s followers and Bourgeault thoroughly examines that new perspective.
If you are new to our midweek class, please feel free to drop in this coming Tuesday, 28 April, when the group will meet just to drink coffee and eat chocolate together. The book is available at Amazon in either paperback or Kindle form. If you have trouble obtaining a book, please text or call Pastor Sue. You can e-mail the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need Sue's phone number. Please join us!
