Over the three Sundays in June – 8, 15 and 22 – Corinna Guerrero will address each of the above concepts: We start off with a little church history, but end in a call to advocacy. We hope youʹll join us.
Here is some more about our guest lecturer:

Building upon her ancient and modern language training at SJSU, Corinna moved first to Berkeley, California to study at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) then second, and more briefly, to Jerusalem, Israel to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her work at both institutions earned her a Master of Arts in Biblical Languages degree with a concentration in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature from the Graduate Theological Union. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Biblical Studies with specializations in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Literature and Literary Theory at the GTU.
Her current research areas include: Deuteronomistic History, the book of Judges, biblical literature of the post‐Exilic era, theories of character formation, minor character studies, trauma and atrocity/torture studies, and contextual hermeneutics.
