Join By The Rivers for an experiment in multi-faith learning.

This study group will focus on representative texts from the scriptures of each of the Abrahamic faiths (Islam, Christianity, and Judaism) and wrestle with the meanings of these ancient words and their impact on us today. The group will gather to engage in conversation, not conversion; in respectful listening rather than polemics. The goal is building personal connections among members of the group and gaining an appreciation of each tradition.

The group will engage in a method known in academic circles as Scriptural Reasoning. Each session will focus on one topic as represented in the Qur'an, New Testament, and Torah. Topics include: wisdom, revelation, covenant, Abraham's journeys, and encountering God, among others. One aim is that this four week series will foster interest in a continuing study group.

Study sessions will begin at the end of February, 2016.
