Thoughtful Thursdays

Thoughtful Thursdays

St. Gabriel has for many years offered a faith-sharing group called “Thoughtful Thursdays”.  In the past, they would normally gather after Thursday morning daily Mass to reflect on and discuss various videos or books or study programs on Scripture, Spirituality, Sacraments, etc.  Once the pandemic shutdown occurred, the meetings ceased.  BUT, they began once again during the past Advent, meeting via Zoom, to ponder the weekly Sunday readings.  And we are going to resume our meetings later this month, with a brand new video series, “The Case for Jesus:  The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ”. 

In this new Lectio series, Dr. Brant Pitre draws evidence from both early Christian and non-Christian writings attesting to the authenticity, authorship, and dating of the Gospels, and he gives an in-depth look at the gospel accounts of Jesus’s Crucifixion, Resurrection, and the proclamation of Jesus’s divinity. 

Topics covered include:

  • Were the Gospels Anonymous?
  • The Early Church Fathers
  • Are the Gospels Biographies?
  • When Were the Gospels Written?
  • The Kingdom of God and the Messiah
  • Did Jesus Claim to Be God?
  • The Crucifixion of Jesus
  • The Resurrection of Jesus
  • Question and Answer

The “Thoughtful Thursdays” group will be meeting weekly at 9:30 am, beginning Thursday, January 28th.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact me at 262-628-1141, ext 223, or at [email protected], and I’ll send you the Zoom link for the meeting.  Also, I would consider offering this series at another date/time if there is enough interest, so if the Thursday mornings don’t work for you, but you’re still interested, let me know...

Whether you can attend the whole series or only individual sessions, you’re welcome any Thursday morning!

His Peace to all!
