Interpreting the Bible for Participation in the Mission of God
September 18 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Who is God, what does God care about, and what is God up to in the world? We may primarily think of such questions in terms of ‘theological’ or ‘doctrinal’ categories related to our Christian beliefs, but they are also ‘missional’ questions that point us toward divine purposes–toward the mission of God–into which we ourselves have been called as the body of Christ. This five-week introduction to missional interpretation of the Bible will explore the formative function of scripture for active and engaged participation in God’s own purposes. We will be encouraged, challenged, and equipped to read biblical texts with new eyes and ears as together we lean into fuller and more faithful participation in God’s mission.
We’ll meet on Geneval Hall’s 2nd floor, room G202, with facilitator Michael Barram, PhD.
