Adult Bible study and the lively discussions it evokes take place spring and fall in six sessions on Tuesday mornings and evenings every other week. Past series have covered Genesis, Matthew, the writings of the Apostle Paul, and the Psalms. Future subjects depend on choices the participants will make.
The purpose of the study is to familiarize modern readers with sections of the Bible, to consider how these shaped the Christian faith at its birth, and to invite thought about implications for lives of faith and responsible action today. Divergence of viewpoints is welcome.
Discussions are led by the Rev. Paul S. Allen, pastor emeritus of the Winnetka Congregational Church in a Chicago suburb, and by volunteers from the group. Leaders provide information about the contexts and possible original meanings of writings out of an ancient world, but participants mull and debate implications for us now.
The two-hour discussions take place at 10 am and 7 pm in Mr. Allen’s home, with snacks provided group members. Watch for schedules here and in church publications.
