Aug. 18 lunch at St. Peter’s in Del Mar explores the ‘Not-So’ Holy Land

Come share a lunch sponsored by the seniors of St. Peter’s as religious studies professor David Moseley, Ph.D., shares some unique insights on the Holy Land.

For August’s all-ages-friendly “Senior-Sponsored Lunch,” at noon Aug. 18, Moseley will present his Top Ten Favorite Places and Experiences in the (sometimes not so) “Holy Land.”

The talk will feature photos and reflections from his recent travels in the Middle East visiting biblical lands — contested real estate that is sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths, and includes the places where Jesus lived and ministered in ancient Israel.

Moseley is director of global education and teaches religious studies and philosophy at The Bishop’s School, La Jolla. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in law, theology and philosophy from Oxford University; and a doctorate in theology from Cambridge University. He has been teaching theology and biblical studies at the University of San Diego since 1997. He is also the theologian-in-residence at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego, and a member of the faculty of the San Diego Diocesan School for Ministry.

St. Peter’s Senior-Sponsored Lunches occur every third Tuesday, from noon until 2 p.m. There is no fee, but $10 donations are welcome. Just call 858-755-1616 to add your name to the head count by Aug. 16.
