This class is led each week by our minister Rev. Trina Bose North and meets in the church’s Parlor. They read and discuss books written by leading Christian authors, including Adam Hamilton, Diana Butler Bass, and Philip Newell, among others. We also do special studies for Advent and Lent. Guests will find themselves in a thought-provoking environment where questions are always welcome!
The Journey Sunday School class is reading The Rule of Benedict by Joan Chittister. It offers daily reflections on the rules Saint Benedict created for the first monastery back in the 5th century. Each week, Trina will highlight a daily reading (you don’t have to be reading at home to participate).
Beginning on August 17, 2023, we will beginning a series called “Making Sense of the Bible” based on Adam Hamilton’s book. Join us to discuss their topics and ideas.
MORE ABOUT THE BOOK: Denominations from evangelical to mainline continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues. The underlying debate isn’t about a particular social issue, but instead it is about how we understand the nature of scripture and how we should interpret it. The world’s bestselling, most-read, and most-loved book is also one of the most confusing. In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton, one of the country’s leading pastors and Christian authors, addresses the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answers many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike.Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will be assigned to hell? Why would Paul command women to “keep silent in the church?” Were Adam and Eve real people? Is the book of Revelation really about the end times? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong? In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.
