Throughout the Hebrew Bible (our Old Testament), the concept of shalom conveys God’s desire for all people: relationships marked by wholeness, peace, health, and security. We are called to shalom in our relationships with God, each other, and all creation. When our communities are marked by shalom, they exude compassion, wisdom, and equanimity (i.e., balance and serenity). In this class, we will explore the biblical concept of shalom and pray together for it. Join Reverend Theresa Latini (Executive Director, Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center) and Reverend Dale Peterson (Director of Spiritual Care, Mount Olivet Careview Home and Mount Olivet Home) for a mix of biblical study, reflection, and guided prayer all aimed at helping us receive God’s promise of wholeness and peace.
