Annual Summer Scripture Seminar: "The Difficult Texts" featuring Dr. Daniel Smith-Christopher

Saturday, August 22, 2015; 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
University Hall
1 LMU Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90045

The study of sacred Scripture is central to Christian tradition. Many of these sacred texts have served, and continue to serve, as a source of comfort in hard times, wisdom in the face of obstacles, and a call to justice for those abused and oppressed. But as familiar as many of us are with biblical parables of revelation and hope, we are equally familiar with the Bible’s more difficult texts. Click here for more information.

‌Whether you are a minister, social worker, catechist or educator in need of professional development or simply looking to quench your own spiritual curiosity, the Center for Religion and Spirituality has something for you.
