Cardigan Sweaters, Magnolia Trees, and Brioche:
Overlooked Biblical Metaphors for God
March 28, 2020, 10:00 – 2:30 p.m.
Dr. Lauren Winner, professor at Duke Divinity School, will guide us to be creatively engaged with sometimes obscure and sometimes overly familiar biblical texts. Drawing on contemporary movies, poetry, anthropologists’ musings, and the writings of medieval mystics, we will ask what it might mean for our prayer lives, our political lives, our lives before God and our lives in community to take seriously the abundance of Scriptural metaphor for God. The material will open up prayer, have a political edge and will involve art and music. This day-long retreat takes the place of our March Sunday School Forums. Mark your calendars and make plans to join us. Lunch and childcare will be provided. Please contact the church office for reservations or sign up on-line: https://forms.gle/XkMzE6nHXn81vaUJ9.
