PLEASE JOIN US FOR BIBLE STUDY
Rev. Dr. Ronald E. Hopson, Bible Teacher
Thursday 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
“We are a progressive Church called by Faith, led by Hope and united by Love to build strong and committed disciples for Jesus Christ.”
We live by the ‘Word of God’ every day!
If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.”
(Galatians 5:25 NRSV)
Come join us as Rev. Dr. Ronald E. Hopson, Senior Transitional Minister leads the Thursday evening Bible Study class. We are reading The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart written by Peter J. Gomes.
The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart will be used as a reference for how to approach studying scripture.
We will be reading and studying the Bible as a source of information (what was happening at the time these words were established as “scripture”?), inspiration (how can we find the will and word of God in and through the words of scripture?) and contemplation (how do we receive and apply the ‘deep wisdom’ of scripture to apply to our contemporary circumstances and our daily lives?).
Currently, the Bible Study is reading The Heart of Christianity: Rediscovering a Life of Faith written by Marcus J. Borg. Rev. Hopson is distributing copies of the book in class.
