History & Myth - Facts and Truth: An Interfaith Learning Evening - Tuesday, October 17, 7:00 p.m.

posted 29 Jun 2017, 12:30 by Gary van der Meer   [ updated 29 Jun 2017, 12:32 ]

Our next Interfaith Learning Evening: St. Anne's invites our friends from City Shul, a congregation of Reformed Judaism, for a comparative discussion.

Our formative stories: Are they history? Did it happen? Can they be myths and also be true? 

Rabbi Elyse Goldstein and the Rev. Gary van der Meer will each take a turn to address this theme. 

"We do not speak for all Jews or all Christians. We don't speak for all Reformed Jews or all Anglicans. We don't even claim that we speak for all of our congregants. We each offer our own perspective, and then it's time for you to work on yours."

We will sit in mixed table groups of Jews and Christians (plus any observers/friends invited to join us). 
Once you've heard Rabbi and Priest, it's time group conversation. What did you hear? What makes sense to you? How does your perspective influence your participation in the life of your community/oongregation?

Please register in advance by contacting Gary or Elyse. Participation will be limited to those who register.

Date: Tuesday, October 17, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Skey Room, St. Anne's Parish Hall.

Next Shared Learning Event: Comparing and Learning from Passover & Easter traditions, Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
