Yesterday the participants had their first day of theology and scripture classes with Dr. Vera Shevzov (Professor of Religion at Smith College) and Dr. Michael Legaspi (Associate Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and Jewish Studies at Pennsylvania State University). Small staff-led break out discussion groups followed their theology and scripture lectures.
In the afternoon, we all went downtown and had a picnic on the Boston Common, the oldest park in the country! In the evening, Deacon Mike facilitated a session on vocation and monasticism.
It was a full day of fun, learning, and growing close as a group!
