From Political Freedom to Resurrection: God’s Responses to Suffering
Rev. Dr. Charles Aaron, Co-director of the Perkins School of Theology Intern Program and Associate Professor of Supervised Ministry will lead us in understanding how this theme is represented in the Old Testament books of Exodus, Amos, Job, and Daniel.
God and the Law
Mary Jo McCurley, Phil Bush, Robert Thetford, and Alex Bell will present us with five different perspectives on God and the Law, namely, “God in the Mosaic Law to the Law in the New Testament,” “God in the Laws of Relationships,” “God in the Laws of Conflict,” “God in the Laws of Social Justice,” and “God in the Laws of Justice and Mercy.” Sure to be a fascinating study!
