Sunday Morning Bible Study
This ongoing small group looks at the day’s scripture reading with the help of commentaries and reflections. The readings will be printed and the group will read them together. Coffee is ready at 8:45; come settle in! This small group meets in the Friendship Classroom.
A new Sunday morning small group begins February 3. We will be looking at the role that uncertainty and doubt play in a vibrant life of faith. The group will be working through a 6-part video series from The Work of the People. The series is described here:
The Webster’s definition of doubt is: “to be uncertain about something; be undecided in opinion or belief.” Some synonyms for “doubt” include: apprehension, confusion, disbelief, lack of confidence, misgiving, mistrust, quandary, skepticism, suspicion, uncertainty, and reluctance. Do you recognize any of these in your life right now? If you do, you are in the right place as you begin this video series. Journey alongside Rachel Held Evans,Greg Boyd, Peter Rollins, Sarah Bessey, Chris Heuertz and Dwight Peterson who aren’t afraid to doubt and are convinced that questions and uncertainty are a central element of a vibrant and transforming faith. Mystery is one of the most central ingredients of faith. Our questions don’t lead us down a slippery slope where we lose our faith completely but rather to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God that is built not on certainty and blind obedience but on honesty, vulnerability, and trust. The six videos are an excellent launching point for meaningful discussion with other honest friends who are wrestling with their own questions and doubts, too.
Join in any Sunday beginning February 3. This small group will meet in the Balcony Classroom.
