After our Tuesday morning chapel, Dr Ezra Kok, our Principal, and I were talking about my public lecture in the Inaugural Dialogue of OHMSI. Since there is a slot available in next week's chapel, Ezra suggested that we do a "political" reading of the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).
Sounds like a good idea! So we agreed that we would do a dialogue for the following week's Tuesday morning chapel message, with both of us taking different political perspective respectively in reading the text.
It would be interesting to see how we engage the text in a different and fresh perspective governed by different hermeneutical approaches and what the response from seminary community would be. Wish us luck!
