This workshop explores the images that guide our interpretation of Scripture as well as our practices for understanding communities and ourselves. Dr. Shively Smith will guide participants in a visual journey of consideration, contemplation, and creation where your own visions are explored in conversation with specific biblical images and passages. Participants will come away from this workshop with new avenues for exchanging the ideas and witness arising from Scripture, ourselves, and our world.
The Rev. Dr. Shively Smith, Assistant Professor of New Testament at Boston University School of Theology, is a sought-after teacher, preacher, and author. Smith focuses on the Catholic Epistles, diaspora studies, rhetoric and hermeneutics, and African American and womanist approaches to the Bible.
