Welcome to Emmanuel Episcopal Church
We are happy to welcome our new priest, The Reverend Beverly Patterson!
Bible Study Begins Jan 6th via ZOOM
Beginning Wed, Jan 6th at 6:30 pm we will start our ZOOM Bible study titled “Bible Basics.” Topics will include: Languages of the Bible, Formation of the Canon (the authorized list of books), the arrangements of the books and why trying to read from Genesis through Revelation is not easy or even the best way, what is the overarching story of the Bible, what are some of the cultural clues we need to be aware of, what are some tools available to help you in your Bible studies, and more. If you have particular questions, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to incorporate them in the class. I’m not sure just how long we will take, probably 4-6 weeks, it will depend upon how may questions we get and how much conversation happens during the study.
Upon completing of this course, we will begin a study of the works of C. S. Lewis. Go ahead and begin sending me questions, favorite works, etc. as I am beginning to work on this at this time as well.
