This workshop will present a conversation between Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and pastoral theology and care. Connections between the tensions, ambiguities, and complexities of biblical stories and our own stories will be examined. The goal is to examine assumptions about the Bible and pastoral care so that the Bible can become a more useful resource in pastoral caring.
