Event Series: Isaiah and Being Neighborly
Isaiah and Being Neighborly
January 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
We continue to hear readings from Isaiah in Epiphany and so our guiding question remains: How do we create faithful, Christian interpretations of Isaiah for today while respecting the interpretations of our Jewish neighbors?
We will revisit key themes from our December series on Tyler Mayfield’s “Unto Us a Child Is Born,” which will be a refresher for those who attended and a good overview for those who could not. We will adopt Mayfield’s framework of what it means to be neighborly as our guide for how we might interpret the Isaiah passages we hear on Sundays during worship.
As we see a rise in overt anti-Semitism in mainstream American culture, this adult education series not only provides an opportunity for deepening your understanding of Scripture but a broader way of thinking about how we, as Christians, engage with neighbors of other faiths and uphold the dignity of every human being.
This is not a repeat of the December series. So if you attended, there is still much to explore. If you did not, you will still be able to fully participate. You do not need to read the book.
