Pittsfield: Summer class offered on "Other Gospels"

Friday July 5, 2013

Barbara Rice, the summer ministerial intern at South Congregational Church, is offering a four-week class on four ancient texts that were important in early Christian communities, but were excluded during the compilation of what is known today as the Bible.

This class will meet from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, July 10, 17, 31, and Aug. 7, in the South Church parlor, 110 South St.

The class will read and discuss The Gospel of Mary, The Gospel of Thomas, The Thunder: Perfect Mind, and The Acts of Paul and Thecla.

Participants do not have to be affiliated with South Church to be a part of the class. To register, call the church office at (413) 442-7357.
