Stories Traveling Through Time: The Good Samaritan
Are 2,000-year-old parables relevant in today’s world? You decide! ERUUF's Christian Fellowship is facilitating discussions on May 19, June 16, and June 30, each focusing on one parable from the Christian Scriptures. Sessions will cover historical background, a series of questions to find universal values and lessons and a rewrite of the parable for modern times.
In each of three sessions, we will read one parable from the Christian Scriptures, then use historical background and a series of questions to analyze the content for universal values and lessons. Together, we’ll explore the parable’s relevance to UU principles, and finally, suggest modern settings and characters through which the values could be illustrated in today’s world. Parables covered: The Good Samaritan, The Rich Fool, and The Workers in the Vineyard. Bring a bag lunch, and we will provide drinks and dessert.
