ReJUNEvation 2017

Julia M. O'BrienMany of our alumni/ae and friends have fond memories of Winter Refresher events, which brought scholars to Saskatoon in February to speak about new and exciting scholarship in theology. Now we’re taking that history of excellent scholarship, warm community and great conversation and moving it to June with our inaugural ReJUNEvation event scheduled for June 14-16.

Our theme speaker is Dr. Julia M. O’Brien, the Paul H. and Grace L. Stern Professor of Old Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, speaking on the theme of “Is That Really God Speaking? Prophecy in the Bible and Today.” Because those who claim to speak for God pose an inherent threat to institutions, religious and political bodies have historically developed ways to “test” prophets and their message. These lectures provide a brief look at the ways in which claims about prophecy have prompted not only suppression but also innovation within religious institutions. Sharing research from her sabbatical project in progress, Dr. O’Brien invites us to consider: how do we know if God really is still speaking?

Along with Dr. O’Brien’s theme lectures, we will have workshops with St. Andrew’s faculty. We’re still working on other events, which might include coffee-house-type performances, movie screenings, or other thoughtful entertainment. And, as always, there will be plenty of time to meet new friends, connect with old ones, worship together and get rejuvenated!

Christine Mitchell, professor of Hebrew Scriptures, will also be offering an intensive course alongside ReJUNEvation. The course, BA 221 Prophetic Books of the Hebrew Scriptures, will run June 12-17 with class meetings June 12-14 and June 17. To register for the course, contact the College registrar.
