Making the Familiar Strange: The Dreams of Joseph of Nazareth

Join Education and Program Associate Ally ZimmerMas and Rita Otis, Spiritual Director at Countryside Community Church, for this session of Making the Familiar Strange. Together, we will explore the story of Joseph, the father figure of Jesus, and discuss his dreams described in the Gospel of Matthew.

Read or review the story: Matthew 1:1-2:15

Making the Familiar Strange is an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that inspires people of different religious and nonreligious backgrounds to read the same text together. Rather than providing answers, creating arguments, or shutting down conversation, Making the Familiar Strange gives attendees an opportunity to investigate and share different perspectives on the same texts.

While not required, the program is best if you have access to the stories, which can be through a physical copy or online copy of a Bible, Tanakh, and/or Quran.
