Fabulous Fridays: Interfaith Explorations of Scripture


What? Exploring texts from Torah, the New Testament, and the Qur’an on common themes, using the method of scriptural reasoning, sponsored by Cambridge University: “Scriptural Reasoning (SR) is a tool for inter-faith dialogue whereby people of different faiths come together to read and reflect on their scriptures.  Unlike some forms of inter-faith engagement, it is not about seeking agreement but rather exploring the texts and their possible interpretations across faith boundaries, and learning to ‘disagree better’. The result is often a deeper understanding of others’ and one’s own scriptures, as well as the development of strong bonds across faith communities. SR is now practiced globally, including in places affected by religion-related tensions and conflict.”  People from all faiths and no faith are welcome.  Facilitated by Leadership in a Multi-Faith World at Hendrix College.
