People have been thinking about and studying God and the Bible forever. But, for a long time, only certain people’s voices were listened to, especially within Western Christianity. European men had a lot of good things to say (and some bad things!) But the voices of others were often silenced.
We’re missing out on the voices of Black voices, indigenous voices, people of color’s voices, queer voices and more. A variety of perspectives expands our ideas about who God is, who god is for, and how God acts in this world. This year we’ll highlight some of these voices once a month on the third Sunday. You can read more about it on the blog.
On September 20th, we’ll talk to my seminary advisor, Rev. Dr. Steed Davidson. Dr. Davidson teaches Hebrew Bible at McCormick Seminary in Chicago. He has never been accused of being an easy teacher, and in his teaching would be the seeds of this project. He exposes his students to many voices and perspectives. He has expertise in Postcolonial biblical studies, and is a native of Trinidad and Tobago.
