WASHINGTON ISLAND FORUM – JUNE 25 – 29, 2018
With Dr. Anna Carter Florence
The Washington Island Forum is especially tailored to lay leaders and pastors who want to deepen their spirituality and connect with the message of the scriptures in a more profound way. If you do a quick survey of any bible passage, you’ll find that what is true in life is also true in scripture: the verbs dominate. It’s what we do and don’t do that preoccupies us. And it’s the verbs we cannot imagine for ourselves (live, liberate, forgive, resurrect) that the church offers, and that we reach for, week after week. Through four comprehensive lectures, Dr. Anna Carter Florence will invite us to read the biblical “script” by focusing on the verbs that are given and chosen by the characters, based on her upcoming book “Rehearsing Scripture: Discovering God’s Word in Community.” What new things will we see and hear in both our sacred text and our human drama when we connect the verbs? How can that, in turn, change and renew our reading and speaking about scripture? Learn more and Register now!
