Scriptural Reasoning Event

What Is It?

Scriptural Reasoning (SR) is a practice where participants read passages from the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and Quran together. Reading, listening to, and reflecting on scripture is something many do naturally within their own worshipping communities. Participants in SR are not asked to leave that behind; rather, people of different faiths come together to read and reflect on their scriptures side-by-side. SR is not about seeking agreement but rather exploring the texts and their possible interpretations across faith boundaries, and learning to ‘disagree better’. The result is often a deeper understanding of others' and one’s own scriptures, as well as the development of strong bonds across faith communities. SR is now practised globally, including in places affected by religion-related tensions and conflict.

What Will We Be Reading on September 11th?

We will spend one hour focusing on and reading together passages about "beginnings," how creation is narrated in the Book of Genesis, Surah 21, and the Fourth Gospel.
