Wednesday Study

The Wednesday Study group is an adult class that meets to grapple with Scripture or books on faith in a seminar-type study with discussion and sharing. The class meets from 10 – 11:30 am in the chapel.

Beginning April 26, we will begin reading & discussing The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, a collaboration between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. These two remarkable men spent a week together discussing one of life’s most difficult questions: How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?

For questions or more information, please contact the Rev. Scot McComas at scot.mccomas@stmartininthefields.org.
