Two or three times a year, our priest leads a six-week program of Bible study focused on a particular topic. Everyone reads a a specific chapter or two of Scripture, usually with some questions prepared by our priest to help with the reading, and then we spend an hour or so discussing it. After our Bible study, we celebrate the Eucharist at a short service in our chapel.
Our last two Bible studies were:
The Troubled Brothers of Genesis: we explored the relationships of Cain and Abel, Ishmael and Isaac, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph and his brothers.
Understanding Some Events in Jesus’ Life: we explored Jesus’s rejection at Nazareth, his healing of a paralyzed man, his prayers in Gethsemane, and his last words from the Cross.
During the fall of 2018, we will be exploring five of the parables Jesus told to help his disciples and others understand more about the Kingdom of God. Study packets will be available to help with each person’s reading of the parables. A short Holy Eucharist service will follow each session, for those who would like to join. Sessions will be at 10:00 on Wednesday October 10, 17, 24, and 31, and on Wednesday November 7 and 14.
All are welcome at our Bible study sessions. We hope that people from the Waterloo community will consider joining members of our parish as we read the Bible and think about how the Bible is meaningful in our lives.
