An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until December 17, 2020
In this course, we will read closely three great stories of biblical resilience, each offering a different model of how to persevere. Starting with Saul’s search for redemption, we will make sense of the relation between resilience and desperation. But resilience is not always a desperate act. In reading David’s lament over Saul and Jonathan, we will explore how loss might allow for the opportunity for growth. In our last class, we will challenge ourselves to find resilience even in the rape of Tamar, as we consider what these models might challenge us to do in our own lives.
