Parables: Inviting Wonder about God (Summers at General online registration)
Jesus was a gifted teacher and spiritual guide who told parables to inspire his listeners to think about and experience God’s realm in new ways. Open to interpretation, Jesus’ parables invite wonder and encourage a deeper engagement with the mystery of God's presence in the world. This weekend course will provide a scholarly introduction to the content, characteristics and language of Jesus’ parables and encourage mutual exploration of ways parables serve as a resource for nurturing the spiritual life. Part of General Seminary’s new Spiritual Guidance of Children program, the course will include a review of contemporary presentations of Jesus' parables in children's literature
