Second Sunday after Epiphany
Adult Forum: Even if you missed last week you don’t want to miss “Adam and Eve” as Dr. Levine takes us through our “origin stories.” Which came first, Genesis 1 or Genesis 2? Was Eve really the first woman, or was it Lilith from Hebrew myth? How does God change? Next week, “Murder, Flood, Dispersion” – don’t miss it. Today at 9:00 a.m. in Saint Mary’s Chapel.
