Saturday Morning Scholars: The Beginning of Difference with Rev. Dr. Ted Hiebert
We will reread two classic texts that express biblical attitudes about our cultural identities and differences: the story of the Tower of Babel and the story of Pentecost. We live at a time in the U.S. when there is much harsh rhetoric in the twitter sphere about ethnicity, racism, and difference. And there are important policy debates about fairness and equity for Americans of all colors and cultures. In this conversation, we will ask what guidance the Bible’s classic texts about difference might give us for living in a diverse world. Our guest lecturer is Rev. Dr. Ted Hiebert, the Francis A. McGaw Professor of Old Testament and Dean of the Faculty Emeritus at McCormick Theological Seminary, where he taught Bible for twenty-two years. Join us in Social Hall for this event on Saturday, September 28 from 9am-12pm. Register today!
