Our monthly circle to study Abrahamic scriptures continued with the topic of “Peacemaking” on October 26, 2023.
Scriptural Reasoning (SR) is where Christians, Jews, and Muslims study each other’s sacred texts. SR participants meet monthly to read short passages from their respective scriptures on a topic. Facilitated by a study leader, each session is an opportunity to listen and share various perspectives. SR sessions help participants reflect on a curious list of topics within the Abrahamic tradition. The result is often a deeper understanding of others and one’s scriptures and the development of strong bonds across faith communities.
