FR. DALE IS TEACHING THE BOOK OF DANIEL AT THE ADULT FORUM, 9:15 am for the next several Sundays. This is a fascinating book of the Old Testament comprising two separate parts which were put together dating 165BC, the time of the Jewish rebellion against the Syrians. It gives hope to God’s people, especially at times of great suffering and living under foreign oppression. For the past 150 years, it has been used to support all sorts of cranky ideas stemming from the fantasies of John Nelson Darby, now found in the Left Behind fictions. Come and study this Apocalyptic book at St. George’s Adult Forum.
