Lenten Bible "Detox": Study of Exodus 20:1-17 led by Rick Ufford-Chase

Lenten Bible "Detox"

March 04, 2021, 7:30pm Eastern Time

Each Lent, CLBSJ focuses our attention on the misuse of the Bible to promote and justify violence and oppression. All are welcome on this journey of healing and reclaiming.

In this session, Rick Ufford-Chase will explore a collective reading of the Ten Commandments, which appears in this week’s lectionary. These texts, which are normally experienced as referring to personal morality, have been used to target and persecute those whose speech or behavior is seen as deviant from the norm.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
