Today we will have a special conversation on Jewish-Christian relations led by Rabbi Brad Hirschfield and Professor Matt Skinner. Rabbi Hirschfield and Professor Skinner will focus especially on how Jews and Christians benefit from acknowledging our shared and particular identities, discussing our common and distinctive ways of interpreting scripture, and speaking honestly about the wrongs we have suffered and perpetrated. We are grateful to have this time together to share in meaningful dialogue and learning. We hope you can join us at 11 a.m. Central. The Zoom link will be provided in the community announcements email.

Christians have echoed this proclamation throughout the centuries, in caves and catacombs, churches and cathedrals, now virtually across the internet and the radio.
Gathered in the resurrection dawn, we offer Matins. This week we are led by Tom Witt, Mary Preus, and Sawyer Vanden Heuvel.
