The Bible. Just hearing the word makes some people sing and other people cringe. For some it conjures up images of crusades and inquisitions and preachers shaking their fists at unrepentant sinners. For others it evokes feelings of comfort, joy, and warm memories of Sunday School songs and church pageants. Still others recognize the influence that the Bible has had on art, architecture, music, and literature, its rich base of stories and imagery that are woven into the fabric of western culture.
Perhaps you think, “I don’t even know enough about the Bible to attend a Bible study – I’d be completely lost.”
Well, if you answered ‘yes, that sounds like me’ to any of the above questions, then the series, What Is the Bible? is just right for you. This small group study series will help you explore some of the best-known Bible passages, discover some of the many ways that they can be interpreted, and learn your way around the wonderful, baffling, beautiful, unsettling book called the Bible. We will be using a curriculum from the Massachusetts Bible Society and, according to Rev. Will, it is ‘very UCC’! (He’s taught it before.) The course is designed for six weekly sessions with a group of eight to fifteen people.
If you are interested, start thinking about how you might fit this into your schedule. Click here if you’re ready to sign up. You can also contact Rev. Will Burhans or Anne Hoenicke who will be co-leading the program with questions or to express interest.”
