The programme will be facilitated by Sr Therese Fitzgerald, Sister of Our Lady of Sion. Sr Therese is an accomplished Scripture scholar. It will be a wonderful opportunity to explore the Book of Genesis and its key characters who continue to shape our lives today. We will pay particular attention to three figures whose stories inform the narratives of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As we engage with how Abraham, Sarah and Hagar relate with one another, we will reflect on ways in which their stories might support us in our personal response to others. In all of this, we will explore how God’s creative presence continues to transform our lives, as it did theirs.
No prior knowledge is needed for this programme, Sr Therese will guide people through the text.
During this programme, there will also be an opportunity to learn some ways in which to approach Biblical texts. Our guiding principle in this will be fine tuning our capacity to hear God’s Word and keep it (Luke 11:28).
