Contemporary Topics & the Bible: Values in Action (GR. 7-12)

The contemporary news cycle seems unprecedented. Previous generations were not faced with frequent mass school shootings, the #MeToo movement, or dealing with the complexities of gender identity. Of course, many of our current hot topics are perennial issues, such as immigration policy & the division between rich & poor. In this class we will turn to Biblical text to find guidance to address these topics in engaging & informative ways. Our current issues could not have been imagined during Biblical times, but we can learn to guide our students to mine the wisdom of the Bible for underlying values that can help us sort through contemporary topics & find clarity. From that clarity we can encourage our students to act upon their values.
