Event Details
“Everybody in the Old Testament is an anti-hero,” asserts the Rev. Judy Fentress-Williams, PhD. Using the tools of narrative and biblical performance criticism, this retreat will consider ways in which certain biblical characters (with all their humanness, flaws, and gifts)—especially the ones in Genesis—function in biblical narrative, then and now. By engaging the literary artistry of the text, we aim to uncover theological meanings and implications for our lives of faith today. Bring your Bibles and your questions! Come for a time of engaging study, as well as opportunities for prayer, nature walks, and meditation on the scenic grounds of Trinity Retreat Center.

Led by the Rev. Dr. Judy Fentress-Williams.
