Pilate’s question to Jesus, “What is Truth?” (John 18:38), resonates through the ages as we each stand before God wrestling with questions of meaning and identity. In our time, the idea of truth is under attack in new ways, challenging our coherence as a society and the witness of the church.
This Lent, the annual preaching series at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston will feature bishops, scholars, a poet and a journalist engaging the question, “What is Truth?”
"Hearing a wide range of voices from a variety of social locations is a critical aspect of living into our promise to seek and serve Christ in all persons," the cathedral's Dean, the Very Rev. Amy E. McCreath, said of the roster of preachers for the series.
The series takes place on Thursdays through 11 April from 12-1:30 p.m., featuring a simple worship service with guest sermon, followed by a light lunch and conversation with the preacher. All are welcome.
