SEEKING WISDOM BIBLE STUDY

A Gathering for EVERYONE SEEKING to DEEPEN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

and DISCOVER MORE about being a JESUS FOLLOWER

Saturday, FEBRUARY 9, 2018 – 10:00 – 11:30 AM – Fireside Room

Led by Dr. Ginny Smith

Please join us Saturday, FEBRUARY 9, 2018, for an enthusiastic and enlightening discussion of God’s Word and how it applies to and can be lived out in our lives today.  The Scriptures are amazing!  Those who gather have found that Brian D. McLaren’s book, We Make the Road by Walking, is an excellent guide in helping us dig deeper into what can often be unfamiliar territory. 

On FEBRUARY 9 we will be discussing chapters 27 (“a New Identity) and 28 (“A New Path to Aliveness”).  We’ll be digging deeply into Matthew 5:1-48 and reflecting on how the beatitudes can be the key to living a Christian life. (This was originally scheduled for our January gathering, but due to low attendance it postponed until February 9.)

               “Who are blessed? What kinds of people should we seek to identify with? . . . (Jesus) creates a new kind of hero: not warriors, corporate executives, or politicians, but brave, determined activists for preemptive peace, willing to suffer with him in the prophetic tradition of justice.  Our choice is clear from the start: if we want to be his disciples, we won’t be able to simply coast along and conform to the norms of our society.  We must choose a different definition of well-being, a different model of success, a new identity with a new set of values.”

               Our next gathering times will be March 9, April 13, May 11, and June 8.

Hope to see you on FEBRUARY 9.  PEOPLE OF ALL AGES ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME.
