THE  DADIAN GALLERY IS OPEN AGAIN!  Be sure to see “LIVING TRADITION:  Icons for the Liturgical Year by Davydov & Shalamova.” Lovingly created and transported from Russia, 35 contemporary icons continue, extend, and reinterpret the centuries-old tradition of art used as a powerful and responsible instrument for preaching a visual sermon.  Consider this your invitation to connect with the face of holiness.  For more information about the exhibit please contact Amy Gray:  202-885-8637 or agray@wesleyseminary.edu.

 

SECOND MONDAYS AT WESLEY – “Living Matthew 25: Focusing on the Big Things.” 

The Gospel will always challenge the status quo. In the 25th chapter of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that to do it to one of the least is to do it to him. So he challenges us to heal the sick, feed the hungry, and welcome the stranger. Big things!

Please join us as we explore “Living Matthew 25: Focusing on the Big Things.” Wesley’s faculty will unlock the Holy Scriptures and the church’s history, traditions, and theology to clarify the Gospel imperatives of healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and welcoming the stranger.

 

Our first meeting of the academic year will be Monday, Sept. 8, from 7:30 – 9 am in Elderdice Hall at Wesley’s main campus (4500 Massachusetts Avenue, NW).  President David McAllister-Wilson will be our first speaker of the season.  Please RSVP to events@wesleyseminary.edu or  202-885-8630.
