We are excited to announce our next new adult faith formation opportunity, a 6-session series titled “Bible 101: Making Sense of Scripture,” led by our lead minister, Rev. Matt Emery. Drawing upon the book Making Sense of the Bible: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today by United Methodist pastor Adam Hamilton, the first half of the series takes an introductory look at just what the Bible actually is, an orientation to the basic storyline and content of the Old and New Testaments, and explorations of what the nature of scripture is—that is, how is it that the Bible functions for us as part of our faith tradition. In the second half of the series, we’ll take up sometimes “challenging” topics like science-and-the-Bible; violence, suffering, and other troubling issues; and sexuality & relationships.
The Bible 101 series will meet on six Wednesday evenings, October 6 to November 17 (no session on November 10), from 7:00 pm to around 8:15 or 8:30, in the Lounge. Access to a copy of the above-named book by Adam Hamilton will be required; we’ll place an order for print copies through the local independent bookseller Black Bond Books / Book Warehouse, but the title is widely available if participants want to obtain their own, or if they want it for Kindle or other eReader.
