Friday, May 12, 7:00pm
following the Ethical Eating Dinner.
We will be wrapping up our “Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures” workshop series with sessions in May and June.
On Friday, May 12th, following the Ethical Eating Potluck, we will focus on the biblical stories involving Abraham and his son Issac. Both the story of Issac’s birth and (later) his binding are central to three separate religious traditions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Both stories also contain troubling aspects. Their interpretation is by no means settled and continues to be debated thousands of years later.
Join us as we revisit these stories in a multigenerational environment and learn about the cultural and religious contexts. We will also explore what value and/or wisdom they may hold for us today.
Mark your calendars now for May 12th: Dinner at 6:00, Workshop at 7:00. Feel free to attend either one or both.
