Living in the Tension Gathering – Mon Feb 25

For our upcoming Living in the Tension gathering, we’re going to be tackling a big but important topic: how do we interpret the Bible. One of our interns, Michael Overman, and a couple staff members, Michael Kimpan and Jason Bilbrey, will be leading us in a discussion about the many factors that go into how we interpret and apply scripture to our everyday lives. Feel free to bring a Bible with you as we will most likely be flipping through to find passages that have or have not been problematic when interpreting. It promises to be an engaging, though-provoking evening.

We will be meeting on Monday, February 25th, at 7pm. The group will be gathering in Room 120 on 5255 N. Ashland Avenue. If you are available beforehand, we would love to have you join us for dinner at Lady Gregory’s around the corner on 5260 N. Clark St. at 5:15pm.

We hope to see you there!

Much love.
