Pentecost 18 Darkness Into Light

Exploring the scriptures

Exploring the Scriptures

We are running a Fall session of a Hop, Skip and a Jump through the bible, meeting on five Wednesdays from Sep 27 to Oct 25 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.

 

Sep 27              Psalms: conversations with God – prayers, laments and praise

Readings: Psalms 40, 139, 22, 144 and 150

Oct 4                 Letters to the Hebrews

Oct 11              Phillippians – a love letter from prison

Oct 18              The Gospel of Mark

Oct 25              Epistle of Jude
