We will look at some of the stories about King David and about King Ahab and Queen Jezebel and the use and abuse of power. Their stories also include the role of those willing to speak truth to power such as the prophets Nathan and Elijah. One session will focus on the role of those on the margins of society, for example, women and their own particular use of "power" despite the limitations of their marginality.
