Join us on May 8th at 11am via zoom for our next Adult Forum. Dr. Crystal Hall, The Kraft Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies at United Lutheran Seminary, will lead the forum on the call into right relationship with God's Creation.
Ecology is a central theme throughout the Bible, and this forum will focus on Paul's "new creation" in Galatians. While this text has traditionally been read as the "new believer" in Christ, this study will explore the connections between humanity and Creation for Paul, and how the call into right relationship extends not just to humanity but also to Earth.
Dr. Crystal L. Hall has taught at United Lutheran Seminary since 2018, and co-directs the Guatemala Immersion Semester Program. Her research focuses on the Pauline corpus, apocalyptic literature, poverty and wealth, and ecological and liberationist hermeneutics. She is a frequent speaker in congregational and synodical settings on women’s leadership, LGBTQIA+ inclusion, and immigration. Dr. Hall is a lay leader in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). She resides in Philadelphia, and enjoys hiking and bringing friends together around a meal.
