The DeBow and Catherine Moore Freed Contemporary Christian Lecture Series w/Louis Stulman, Ph.D., Professor of Religion
What does the Bible say about loss, trauma, and even immigration? On Friday, September 30, 2016 at 7:30pm Louis Stulman will give a lecture on one of the most neglected yet important passages in the Old Testament: Deuteronomy 26:5, “My father was a Syrian refugee.” This brief biblical verse remembers the identity of God’s people as an at-risk, dis-empowered people. It honors the community’s immigrant roots. It treasures the memory of trauma and refuses to deny the painful realities of loss. It even dares to see itself in the face of the “outsider” (i.e., the Syrian). This remarkable language of vulnerability captures something core about biblical faith. It even anticipates the teaching of Jesus which shatters cultural barriers, sees the essential dignity and value of all people, and identifies with the broken and vulnerable, “the least of these” (Matt 25:31-46). That is the Gospel/Good News and that’s what will be explored in this challenging and provocative talk.
