Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Summer 2019

The Book of Job

Guided by Bruce Johnson

          This summer the Wednesday Morning Bible Study Group will be reading and discussing some of the poems found in the Old Testament Book of Job.  In these poems, some of the great mysteries of our faith tradition are explored.  The central focus of the Book of Job is the nature of the relationship between God and humankind.  The mysteries of freewill, temptation, human suffering, and the influence of evil forces in the world are all explored in this collection of ancient poems.

          You are invited to join us as we gather for a hour of lively discussion and shared reflection on passages from the Book of Job.  The group meets at 10:30 on Wednesday mornings in the parish library.  Consider making this part of your spiritual life.
