April 24 – June 5 – 9 a.m. in the Chapel

The seven ‘deadly’ sins, formulated in the Middle Ages as a tool for moral instruction and confession, have long been a source of inspiration for writers and artists, from medieval morality plays to modern movies and video games. In this seven-session study for adults we will explore all seven deadly sins and their corresponding virtues, focusing on both Scriptural references and contemporary culture. What relevance might this litany of ‘original sins’ and their antidotes have for us today?
