“The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home.” – Augustine of Hippo
On Wednesday, September 27, we will re-ignite a long held tradition of a midweek Bible Study. Last Wednesday, I met with a group of seven people who have expressed interest and have been involved in the past, in some cases for decades.
Following the apostle Paul, the purpose of a Bible Study is the renewing of our nous. In the Bible, the word “nous” is typically translated as the word “mind.” However, it is more accurately understood as heart-mind or spirit. This nuance points to our propensity to think dualistically, an inheritance from Western philosophy which has served us well in many regards, but has limitations we overlook to our own detriment (click here to watch a short video on what we mean by dualistic thinking).
We would love to have you join us as we seek to renew our nous through the reading of Scripture. Please let me know what questions you have: switty[at]harvardmaucc.org.
Here are the details:
