Joining a Bible study group is a very special way of growing closer to God and other people of faith. A Bible study group provides education, fun, challenges, fellowship and prayer — all in an hour! People at all stages of their spiritual journeys are welcome, irrespective of knowledge or lack thereof.
The Wednesday morning Bible Study group meets 10:30 a.m. – 11:45 am from mid-September until June.
Here’s a reflection from Chris Tang, Rector, about this Fall’s Bible Study topic:
“Be honest. When did you last read a book like Amos? Or perhaps the better question is “Have you ever read Amon?” or “Where do I find Joel”? The Minor Prophets form the last 12 books of the Old Testament. We are generally unfamiliar with both the historical context and the overall spiritual message of these books. “Minor” refers not to their importance but to their length. One of these, Obadiah, is only a single chapter long, and the longest are each 14 chapters.
One theme that unifies the 12 prophets is Israel’s relationship with God. What does God demand of humans? How do historical events signify God’s word? These are questions that appear throughout Biblical prophecy. But nowhere in the Bible does a single book present as wide a variety of views on these subjects as does the collection of the Twelve Minor Prophets. Join our Wednesday morning Bible Study to discover a sampling of four of the Minor Prophets and explore what they might be saying to us today.
For those who might wish to see how one Minor Prophet has been captured in fiction, pick up a copy of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It is a retelling of Hosea, one of my personal favorites of the Minor Prophets.”
All are welcome at any time! Please call the office at 410-252-2711 if you are interested so that materials can be ordered for you.
