Crisis, Immigration, and Imagination – Loss and Reclaiming of Peoplehood in the Ancient and Post-Modern Worlds (Jesus Seminar)

Hal Taussig of Union Theological Seminary and Chebon Kernell, Executive Secretary of Native American and Indigenous Ministries/United Methodist Church and enrolled member of the Seminole Nation ask:

“What if the New Testament and related texts were not written to start a new religion but to address dislocations of populations, violence, and loss within the Roman Empire?”

Second Century Mediterranean Christ-communities and 21st-century Native American communities share common challenges. Each experienced forms of violence, migration, and forced refugee status, but also expressed spiritual resistance and renewal. How can this help us address similar conditions and renewal in Native American settings?

Baxter Hall, Friday, April 13, 7:30–9:00 p.m., and Saturday, April 14, 9:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
