The Gospel of Thomas Series  The first and third Wed. of the month 1:30 to 3:00 pm, Center for Spiritual Awakening, Christ Lutheran Church, 1245 W. Hamilton St, Allentown, PA.  Discovered in a cave in Egypt in 1945, the Gospel of Thomas is a collection of 114 sayings of Jesus. Rather than being narratives, they are more like koans or riddles. They appeal more to the heart and imagination than to reason. You are invited to attend ongoing gatherings to explore this gospel using the prayer form of lectio divina (Latin for Divine Reading). Direct questions and registration to Mary Howe: mhowe@rcn.com
