July 17-18, 2014 Bible Study for Gather Magazine: Transforming Life and Faith Bible Study
A new life partner, a new child, a new job, a new home: most of us recognize how our lives are changed by these experiences. In Transforming Life and Faith we will consider how our lives and faith journeys are transformed by the events and people we meet. In both testaments, and especially in the Acts of the Apostles, we will read about people who have life-changing experiences: Paul on the road to Damascus, Moses in the wilderness of Midian, Lydia praying by a river in Macedonia, an Ethiopian man traveling from Jerusalem to Gaza. We will watch them turn to and with God as their minds, hearts and daily lives are altered. And we will reflect on the ways we too have been and will be transformed by life encounters and called by God to serve God’s mission in the world.
The cost of tuition includes a light dinner on Thursday evening.
