MILWAUKEE - Sept. 19, 2017 - PRLog -- The end of time is a major theological theme, and some believe Scripture describes it in high definition through all the dramatic scenes in The Book of Revelation. For example, in it are seven trumpets and angels, the beast, and the woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet. What do they actually signify? On Saturday, October 7, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., all are invited to a Scripture study titled "Reading The Book of Revelation" at the School Sisters of St. Francis' campus (1501 S. Layton Blvd. or 27th St. and Greenfield Ave., Milwaukee).

"No other book in the Bible has been more misused than Revelation," said Sister Bea Dorsey, OSF, PhD, the scripture scholar who will lead this study. "Many people use Revelation as a guide to how and exactly when the world will end. This approach and others like it stand in the way of appreciating its magnificent symbolism and appropriating its meaning.

"The workshop, 'Reading The Book of Revelation,' remains both faithful to Revelation and highlights insights that have the capacity to enrich our lives today."

For many years, Sister Bea was lecturer at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology, and she continues to offer theological workshops in Alverno College.

Anyone interested in joining is asked to register in advance and bring a Bible to class. The fee is $15. Write checks to:  School Sisters of St. Francis Outreach Events and mail to St. Joseph Center, 1501 S. Layton Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53215. For more information, please contact:  Donna O'Loughlin at 414-385-5272 or doloughlin@sssf.org.

Ample free parking is available in the School Sisters of St. Francis private lot at 29th Street and Orchard Street.
