Announcing "Things in Heaven & Earth," a Monthly T+SP Discussion Group on Shakespeare's Hamlet

Once a month, we'll gather to explore the following topics:

~What parts of Hamlet reference Biblical wisdom?
~Does Hamlet offer us any wisdom for the Christian journey?
~What do the characters in Hamlet teach us about ourselves? About ambition? About power? About justice? About today’s world?

The first meeting is Sunday, September 8th, from 12:45pm - 2:00pm in St. Mary's Chapel at Trinity + St. Peter's

Participants are strongly encouraged to engage with Shakespeare's most famous play* before each meeting, reading and /or viewing the designated scene(s) for that month.

The designated scene for Sunday, September 8th is Hamlet Act 1, Scene 1**

If you have questions about the "Things in Heaven & Earth," Hamlet discussion group, please contact one of the group hosts, Paul Nettelmann ( paulnettelmann@sbcglobal.net ) or Cynthia Cravens (yarewe_sf@yahoo.com).

*And, thought by many to be the finest literary work in English in the Western canon.
