Fall 2017 – Wednesday Morning Bible Study

The Abrahamic Tradition

As we make our way through the Bible we encounter many stories of people who were convinced that they had special roles to play in the fulfillment of God’s purpose for mankind.  Jacob and Moses are examples of such people in the Old Testament — Mary and Paul in the New Testament.  This fall we are studying a group of stories that are part of the “Abrahamic Tradition.”  In these stories Abraham is presented as a man who believed that his personal journey through life was directly related to the unfolding of God’s plan to enable all the families of the earth to obtain His blessing.

You are invited to be part of these weekly discussions as we gather to consider the meaning of these ancient stories for our own lives.  The Bible Study Group meets in the parish library every Wednesday morning at 10:30. Consider making this class part of your life.
