Theology with a Twist: Midrash and Recovery
October 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
One understanding of the Hebrew term “Midrash” is: Reading biblical stories in a way that makes inferences based upon similarity of content and analogy. Many Bible stories teach a message of healing and reunification with people and communities previously lost due to illness, shame, stubbornness and impulsiveness. We will discuss a few different Biblical stories, and how they have helped some people living with addiction connect once more to their faith, their family and a sense of hope and healing.
