Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus at the University of Cambridge David Ford presents a workshop on interfaith engagement through holy texts on Sunday, April 29 at noon in the Nave. You do not want to miss this chance to delve deep into scripture with Dr. David Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus, University of Cambridge, this Sunday at 12:00 noon (following the 10:30 service) as he leads us in the practice of Scriptural Reasoning. Dr. Ford will introduce the practice, we’ll model a bit of it, then try it ourselves. Scriptural Reasoning invites folks from different faith traditions to explore the rich “multiple depths” of sacred texts in conversation with one another. This Sunday we’ll be looking at texts from the Qu’ran, from the gospel of John, and from Genesis Rabbah (Jewish midrash).
It’s been a delight to have Dr. Ford worshiping at Holy Trinity this year when he is in town as a distinguished professor at Candler School of Theology, Emory University; we are pleased to welcome him to share his work in this way. Joining Dr. Ford in practicing Scriptural Reasoning will be his wife, The Rev. Deborah Ford; Joe Walsh, scholar of Islam, practitioner of Sufi traditions, and friend of L’Arche Atlanta; and our own Mo. Jenna Strizak.
We’ll gather in the narthex and a light lunch will be served. The program will last about 90 minutes. For more information contact .
Events at Holy Trnity Parish
Located in the City of Decatur, Georgia, Holy Trinity Parish is part of the Episcopal Church, guided by its mission statement to Open hearts to God and open doors to community. ✟
Holy Trinity Parish is part of 109 worshiping communities across middle and north Georgia, and part of a worldwide expression of Christianity known as the Anglican Communion. One of our hallmarks is that we find our unity in our common prayer and worship, not in our common thought or belief. When we gather to pray, we join in ancient practices designed to shape our lives to be more like Christ’s. We hear God’s word, pray for the world, confess our sins, receive forgiveness, be at peace with one another, and celebrate our unity with God and one another in Holy Communion.
