"Jeremiah" - The Marc Chagall and the Bible Evening Devotional with Lissa Wray Beal on Oct 12, 2023


Thursday, October 12, 2023 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm


5 Hoskin Ave, Toronto, Wycliffe College (The Great Hall)

The Rev’d Dr. Lissa Wray Beal will lead us into reflecting on Chagall’s depiction of Jeremiah’s painful laments and the power of such lament when God’s people suffer.

The Rev’d Dr. Lissa Wray Beal is a Professor of Old Testament at Wycliffe College and an ordained Anglican priest. Her preaching and teaching attends to the Old Testament’s contribution to a robust New Testament faith. Her research interests lie in Israel’s entry into, life in, and exile from the land and she is currently writing on the book of Jeremiah, noting how the insights of trauma studies deepen our engagement with its message. 

The event is free to the public and no registration is required. Voluntary donations are welcome.
