Sunday Starter Returns September 26th
On the 26th, we begin a 9-week journey covering major themes of the Bible, considering what these ancient texts have to say about the major issues of our day. Our guidebook will be “Who Stole My Bible? Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny” by Rev. Jennifer Butler.
Each Sunday we will have study time from 8:45 – 9:45 in Room 7 (or virtual Room 7) where we consider one chapter’s theme. Then the worship service that follows at 10:00 addressing that same theme. This promises to be an educational and inspiring journey that will integrate scripture, faith, and action in new ways.
From Who Stole My Bible?
“The overarching theme of Scripture is God’s intervention in history as One who hears the groans of oppressed people and acts. We understand the Bible best when we try to join that story.”
