The Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study has been ongoing for more than 25 years. This small, diverse group gathers at 9:15am during the academic year, in the Parish Hall.
Largely driven by the interests of group members, the group has studied individual books of the Bible – digging deep into the questions that shape our faith. During particular seasons of the church year, the group may explore other studies – such as the Christmas letters written while theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was in prison, or the provocative writings of Marcus Borg on the political implications of the events surrounding Jesus’ death on the cross.
Conversations such as these always come with surprises. We celebrate the diverse backgrounds we bring, and give thanks for the lively discussions that arise. This is the work of the Holy Spirit among us. Honoring our different perspectives, we seek understanding of the Scriptures we read in the light of the historical context of the passage, and in the light of today’s reality. We ask ourselves what the passage is saying to us, and what it means for the living of our lives in the world.
All are welcome.
