Scriptural Reasoning Afternoon – ‘Encountering God’
You are invited to an afternoon of Scriptural Reasoning on the topic of ‘Encountering God’.with Rabbi Natan Levy, Interfaith and Social Action Consultant at the Fayre Share Foundation, and formerly Interfaith Officer at the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Dr Usama Hasan, Head of Islamic Studies and Senior Researcher at the Quilliam Foundation, the world’s first counter-extremism think tank and Canon Guy Wilkinson, Interfaith Adviser to the Bishop of Salisbury and formerly Interfaith Adviser to Archbishop Rowan Williams.
On Sunday 15th January 2017, 3.00-5.00pm in St Thomas’s Church, Salisbury. Scriptural Reasoning is a tool for interfaith dialogue whereby people of different faiths come together to read and reflect on their scriptures. Unlike many forms of interfaith 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.
This event has been organised by the Education Team at St Thomas’s Church. All are welcome
