Chiasm? Check my spelling, you say? Well, you read that correctly. It’s really a made-up word, from what I can gather by my Googling attempts. Chiasm seems to be a derivative of “Chiastic Structure,” which is a fancy name for a method of writing (or reading) the Bible. According to T.B. Clarke’s (2013) Bible Discernment website, “A chiasm (ky′-az-um) is a writing style that uses a unique repetition pattern for clarification and emphasis. Often called the chiastic (ky′-az-tic) approach or the chiastic structure, this repetition form appears throughout the Bible yet it is not well known. The way you approach the Scriptures should be dramatically enhanced as you learn what a chiasm is, how to recognize chiasms, and how to glean a fresh application from related New or Old Testament passages.” I’m sure Dr. Smith will be sharing some very interesting insights into what he is currently learning about chiasms, and what this unique method means to us as Unitarian Universalists. Please join us at 10:30 this Sunday to learn all about it!
