Scriptural Reasoning is a practice of inter-faith reading where people of all faiths gather and reflect on short passages from their scriptures together. It is a worldwide movement www.scripturalreasoning.org recently started in Oxford. There is sometimes overlap between texts where different faiths share their Scriptures. We meet in the Harold Wilson Room on Mondays 1.00-2.00pm.
We spend time with texts from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions, and discuss ancient, medieval, and modern interpretations of Scripture, modern day practices which reflect these texts, and what they mean personally for individuals and faith communities. Rabbi Michael Rosenfeld-Schueler helps lead it, and a free, simple kosher lunch is provided.
