We spoke about the healing story in Jesus' willingness to put his disciples in danger on the way to the resurrection of Lazarus.
Our Indaba group encouraged those who had not spoken previously to speak to the group. This offered an opportunity for different voices, and we talked about being faithful to the Scriptures as we interpret them. We discussed that God told Peter not to call unholy what God has created. We talked about how our context shapes the conclusions in the examination of Scripture.
