Seventh Sunday of Easter
Adult Forum: 9:00 a.m. in Saint Mary’s Chapel. The story of David has all the elements of a great saga – heroic deeds, treachery, murder, infidelity, civil wars and repentance. With David’s ascending to the throne a new era begins for the people of Israel. For David’s sin with Bathsheba the prophet Nathan predicts the death of their first son. However, they produce another son, Solomon. Next week; From King Solomon to Pre-classical Prophecy.
