THE TABLE – Young Adults Quarterly Study
November 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 24, 2022
Cornwall Church is launching new programming for young adults ages 18-28. Under the umbrella of Cornwall Young Adults, we are relaunching The Table which is now a quarterly study, where we seek deeper biblical understanding through a thorough study of scripture, books and conversations.
This fall, we will go through Misreading Scripture With Western Eyes. What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text.
Biblical scholars Brandon O’Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. Drawing on their own cross-cultural experience in global mission, O’Brien and Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.
Getting beyond our own cultural assumptions is increasingly important for being Christians in our interconnected and globalized world. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.
This is a 10-week study meeting Thursdays evenings at 6PM at The Club House beginning October 6th and running through December 15th (No meeting on November 24th).
Cost: $30 (Book and dinner included). REGISTER HERE
