Francisco Fact: The season of Lent this year…

Will there be any adult offerings for the season of Lent this year?

Yes! Consider this an invitation to join the Rector via streaming for a Lenten study of the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. These two books cover the period of Judah’s return from Babylon under during the Persian ascendancy of Cyrus the Great. This period sets the literature, the cultural norms, and the theology for Second Temple Judaism, the Judaism of Jesus. Since we only read the stories of these two books once in the three-year lectionary cycle, they are often misunderstood and overlooked.

Join the rector from 11:30 AM thorough 12:30PM Sundays from March 6 through April 10.
