Please join us for an evening of Scriptural Reasoning sponsored by ICPJ’s Common Ground for Peace in Israel/Palestine Working Group.
Scriptural Reasoning is an emerging practice among and between Christians, Jews and Muslims, of reading their sacred Scriptures together, and reasoning together on particular contemporary issues. The practice grounds discussion in the respective religious texts, encouraging participants to be both self-critical and deeply rooted in their commitments to their own particular faith.
Our speakers are:
* Rev. James Rhodenhiser, Rector of St. Clare’s Episcopal Church,
* Aura Ahuvia of the Ann Arbor Reconstructionist Havurah, a rabbinic student with ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal also pursuing a Master’s degree from the University of Michigan in Judaic studies, and
* Dawud Walid, the Executive Director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) and assistant Imam at Masjid Wali Muhammad in Detroit.
This event takes place on Tuesday, June 3. We will begin with a light potluck dinner at 6:30. At 7:00 three speakers will present texts and brief interpretations, after which we will have small group discussions. St. Clare’s Episcopal Church (2309 Packard St., Ann Arbor). The event should be both convivial and interesting! FREE and open to all. Questions? Please contact [email protected].
