Beginning April 12
Building on the hope of The Center for Christian Practice to delve more deeply into our four key focus areas, join us for this Easter season study facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Cynthia Park on April 12, 19, 26 and May 3.
Overview: There is a long tradition in both Judaism and Christianity of using holy imagination to consider the back story that is missing from the biblical story. And yet, the “back story,” meant to assist us with the biblical story, often has its own challenges. The truth is that both are intended to invite the disciple into a practice of asking questions about justice, mercy, humility, and faithfulness. The outcome of this practice is often full of startling surprises, moments of spiritual intimacy, and ultimately more questions about the stories we tell ourselves about God’s presence in our own lives.
Objective: To have some fun exploring four Biblical texts, their accompanying history of Jewish and Christian scholarship of commentary, and to understand how personal stories of faith are composed.
