Reconciling witness in a polarized world
Conflict and division in church and society! With Bible study and contemporary stories, this course shows that disagreement can be healthy for faith communities and societies. Old Testament authors, Jesus, rabbinical Judaism, and the early church all give models for healthy conflict. This study will include some focus on reconciliation in Israel/Palestine. Nelson Kraybill, recently returned from a year in Palestine, is author of Stuck Together: The Hope of Christian Witness in a Polarized World.
