An event every week that begins at 7:00 PM on Thursday, repeating until April 2, 2020
Mercy Seminar, an Urban Well Event
A seminar led by Father David Peck and
Professor Randall Zachman
The Mercy Seminar is an opportunity for those who are seeking to deepen their understanding of God‘s mercy and peace in the world from an interfaith perspective.
Comprised of three terms (six-sessions each), participants will have the rare opportunity—in November 2020—to participate in a contextual learning project at Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem.
The Mercy Seminar begins by seeking to understand the relationship of Jesus Christ to the history of Israel. We will examine brief passages of Hebrew Scripture so that we gain a better understanding of the way Israelites in the time of Jesus would have understood his ministry.
We will read short passages from Matthew and Galatians. No prior reading is required as each session begins with lectio divina (a contemplative practice of reading scripture) followed by a brief lecture, individual reading and reflection and lastly, group discussion.Click here to register for Term 1
