Bible Circle 2020-2021
The Peter Chronicle: St. Peter’s Contribution to our Christian Life
St. Peter is the first of the Apostles, a key member of Jesus’ inner circle. He will become the first Pope in Rome when Peter steps into a leadership role after Jesus’ death and resurrection. But who was he? What marks his particular identity as a disciple of Jesus, and how has his life impacted our understanding of Christian faith?
This year, we will be learning about his character, his ministry, and his legacy. Join us as we explore readings from the Gospels, the Book of Acts, and Peter’s own epistle, First Peter, to learn more about Peter’s contribution to our Christian life.
Bible Circle meets on the second Tuesday morning of the month from 11am to noon. A second Bible Circle class meets on the second Wednesday evening of the month from 7pm to 8pm. (In Lent we meet on the second Tuesday.) Everyone is welcome. —Rev. Margaret Schwarzer
