March 15 | Amos, A Prophet who Saw
Dr. Jina Kang
This week we will explore the book of Amos to grapple with the question:
what did Amos see? As many prophets who preceded and followed afterwards,
Amos saw a community “out of sync” with God’s expectations. We will examine
how this prophet tried to persuade his audience to see what they could not or
would not see. Finally, we will pay attention to how this prophet understood
God’s relationship with God’s people and the world God created.
March 22 | Micah: Life in Community
Dr. Jina Kang
This week we will explore a well-cited text in the book of Micah, Micah 6:8.
We will closely examine the call to act justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly
with your God as essential ways of living in community with one another and with God.
March 29 | Thinking about Refugees in the Bible
Dr. Steed Davidson
Nations are not natural phenomena, but rather constructed as a feature of the
modern world. Nations and their borders are responsible for the creation of
refugees. In the ancient world, as in today’s world, movements of peoples were
quite common. The difference between the ancient world and the modern world is
the creation of borders and legal structures to cross from one area to the next.
Borders produce refugees. Were there refugees in the Bible? If so how were they
treated? Are there lessons to be learned from the way refugees are treated in the
Childcare is provided.
