The Biblical Humanities “Why Do You Stand Outside?”: Hospitality and the Stranger

7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  Lectures and Performances

9:00 – 9:30 p.m.  Wine and cheese reception sponsored by Saint Vincent de Paul Parish


With a series of lectures and live musical performances by the parish chorale, the DHC continues its annual collaboration with the St Vincent de Paul Parish in an investigation of what it means to welcome the stranger.  From an analysis of the ambivalent role played by three biblical strangers who also happen to be the only three women mentioned in the genealogy of Christ, to providing “deep access” to those in our community who are differently abled, to pondering the ways in which the portrait in the history of art might offer an access to empathy, we will think together about the religious, philosophical, artistic, and ethical-political conceptions of strangers, refugees, foreigners, immigrants, and neighbors—and what it means to offer sincere hospitality.
