The senseless violence of the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue calls us first to prayer: for the victims, for the mourning, for the fearful, and for the transformation of all who are infected by anti-Semitism.  It also calls us to disrupt our carefully constructed plans to begin some open and honest conversations about the origins and consequences of religious prejudice.  This week in our small groups (Grace Hour, Skeptics, Group Chat), we will take a look at New Testament interpretation and the origins of Anti-Semitism.  Get ready to dig deep.
