Cultural Immersion into New Encounters with the Bible
Rev. Dr. Velda Love
This workshop invites participants—clergy and laypersons—on a cultural immersion journey into biblical texts from culturally contextualized voices and resources. Reading and studying ancient texts in contemporary times is both liberating and transformative. Biblical scholars from diverse cultures and backgrounds provide new and exciting ways to read, reflect, study, and learn about ancient narratives and people in the twenty-first century. The workshop invites participants to lean in, learn, engage in conversation, and take away new techniques, strategies, and resources for congregations and local churches.
