Wilderness Survival Training:Exploring Exodus, Numbers and Deuteronomy
February 18-March 18 (5 Weeks)
At the core of Jewish identity is the great narrative of liberation, a process of social transformation brought about by the revolutionary interventions of God. And then? Wilderness. And lots of it! For forty years post-liberation, the Hebrews wandered in the desert, grumbling and whining and wondering over and over: Are we there yet? Surviving is one thing, thriving in the wild is another. Let’s dig deep beneath the arid soil of the Israelites’ ancient trials in the wilderness and see what we can learn for today.
And Who is My Neighbor? An Introductory Exploration of Racial Equality
Dates and Times to be Announced
A conversation on race is not easy – it never has been. The subject brings up our deepest held beliefs about who we are and who we should be. It brings up anger, pain, fear, guilt, shame, and even hopelessness. And it is way past time we all pressed into it.
This study was authored by Dr. Eric Barreto, professor at Luther Seminary when he started the work, now on the faculty of Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey.
“This is not the definitive study of race or racial equity. It is not even the first chapter. It is more like a 'trailer' that we hope will cause more of our neighbors to want to read, listen, and understand more.”
—Jodi Harpstead, CEO , Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota
