On Wednesday, July 26, we will begin a study on Judaism. I have been fascinated with all I’ve learned in preparing to lead this study. What I found most interesting, though, is how the Jewish tradition approaches scripture. The Jewish emphasis is not about searching the scriptures to find ancient answers that speak to life matters for all time. Rather, the focus is more on asking questions about the text in understanding its relevancy for a particular time, or more to the point, for the present time, and to learn how the Divine becomes evident through the text.
Study of Judaism
Location: Canton Church of the Brethren
Facilitator: Kevin Kessler
Dates: Wednesdays, July 26, August 2 & 9 7:00 p.m.
The story of Jacob wrestling an angel is at the core of identity of Jewish faith. Each faith journey embodies this experience of Jacob. How then can our church embrace faith wrestling in ourselves as well as others?
