Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will present “Reflecting on The Sermon on the Mount” with Bonnie Thurston, Tues., April 16, 2013 from 9:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. Thurston is an author, spiritual director, and former professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Seminary.

This is a special offering in our ongoing series of workshops for Christian educators, pastors, and all who work in educational ministries in the Church. After a brief introduction to the Sermon and its structure, participants will consider the Beatitudes (Mt 5:3-12—and perhaps write some), the matter of perfection (Mt 5:43-48), and what it might mean to be obedient to Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon. There also will be time to ask questions about Matthew 5-7.

Registration fee is $35. Contact the Office of Continuing Education at 412-924-1345 or ConEd@testsite.pts.edu with questions. Register online.
