Jonah and the Whale (Etc.) for Grown Ups

Exegesis [Ex-a-gee-sis] is a new word for most people. But it’s an interesting way to help the ordinary person understand why those old Bible tales are for adults as well as children. Jonah, for instance. You think he got gobbled up by a whale by accident? There is a lot more to the story! And the young David killing the giant Goliath is about much more than a guy who got lucky with a slingshot. Come enjoy a new way to hear an old story.

Rev. Joan Shiels has a bunch of degrees in world religions. She has been bringing messages to us at UUFDC for 17 years. Her topics range from Anthropology to Zoroastrianism but her best talks often bring us an understanding of what it means to be human.
