Making Meaning in a Disordered World: the Biblical Elisha
Elisha's story begins when he loses his mentor, Elijah, to a fiery whirlwind, despite his best efforts to prevent the loss. We'll follow his footsteps, watching him confront and attempt to tame a hostile world. As we read his stories, we'll grapple with legacy, power, and moral ambiguity, as well as magic sticks, bears, and clever lepers.
