The Parables of Christ in African Perspective

Time: Two Thursdays Nov 12 and Nov 19, 2020, 7:00-8:15 PM, on Zoom

Together with our own Fr. Clement Iorliam, we will explore two parables expressing the message of Jesus. Father Clement will show how a member of his own central Nigerian Tiv tribe might understand these stories. Hearing the parables from a villager’s perspective may shed new light on your own understanding. 

This is a truly unique opportunity to gain a multi-cultural perspective on the Gospel. We will not be holding a face-to-face class.
