Adult Sunday School
Sunday school elective on the Bible and the environment
Humans construct their understanding of “nature” and “culture” and this is evident in how the Bible constructs its various views of the environment of ancient Israel. As a foundational literary text in Western civilization, the Bible’s construction of “nature” and “culture” influences contemporary understandings of environmental issues. This Sunday school elective will meet September 9-December 15 and will explore the relationship between the Bible and nature. There will be some readings for those who want to prepare before Sunday morning, but the readings are not required. Each class session will begin with a summary of the reading often in combination with the reading of a biblical passage and there will be some time for discussion. For planning purposes, please contact Ray Person at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in attending.
