Exploring the Scriptures

 

 

We are running a Spring session of a Hop, Skip and a Jump through the bible, meeting on five Wednesdays from May 17 to June 14 from 7.30-9pm at the Church of the Good Shepherd. We will post the verses to be covered in the blue sheet and on the website in advance so that we can read them ahead of time and then we will discuss them at the meeting. Each week is a ‘stand alone’ meeting so please come to whatever sessions you can fit into your schedule. All are welcome.

 

May 17              The Minor Prophets – A Brief Dig

Readings: Joel 2:28-32; Micah 6:1-8; Habakkuk 1:1-6 (7-11) 12-13; Zechariah 14:4-9; Malachi 3:1-4

 

May 24              The Gospel and Letters of John – Love Divine, All Loves Excelling!

 

May 31              The Letter of James – Taming Tongues and Rotting Riches

 

June 7                 Friends, Romans, Countrymen!  What did Paul say? What do we hear?
