Abraham was called by God to be the father of a “great nation” that would be the source of blessing for all the families of the earth. In the story of Abraham and his descendants, we find a great foundation for our own participation in the unfolding Story of God.
Art deepens our capacity to reflect. It evokes empathy. And it is part of who we are as creatures who were made in the image and likeness of God—the master Artisan. Join us this Advent season as we explore the themes of despair and hope in our city, guided by a burning for justice, longing for beauty, and shaped by the words of scripture.
To conclude our series on the family of Abraham, we will host a panel discussion with clergy representatives from the three Abrahamic faiths. The panelists are: Rabbi Kelly Levy from Temple B’rith Kodesh, Sheikh Ismet Husny Ahmad Akcin from the Islamic Center of Rochester, and Dr. Joseph Kelly, professor of Religious Studies at Nazareth College.
