COMMON TABLE WITH PASTOR EMILY
Wednesdays, February 12-April 8|12:00-1:15pm | Ammons-Lolley Commons
Common Table resumes again, gathering all sorts of folks for the study of the Bible together. Our winter-into- spring study will orient us to the overarching narrative of scripture, how we read and study it, and how it informs our understanding of God and neighbor. With Rachel Held Evans’ Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again as our guide, we’ll end our nine-week study having experienced God’s story of Love in renewing ways. All are invited to take their lunch hour, bring a lunch and a healthy measure of curiosity, and share together in fellowship and Bible study around our common table!

On the Horizon
The on-line Merriam-Webster dictionary provides a relatively new definition of “other:” a group that is perceived as “disturbingly or threateningly different.” Such groups are sometimes feared and are often oppressed. Richard will help participants take a look at the way people who are “the other” are treated in the Bible. In the first session, participants will look and see that the people of God were the “other” in Egypt. The Hebrew people were viewed with suspicion and as a national security risk. Ultimately, they were reduced to slavery as the Egyptians tried to control the population. Then, Richard will help participants see how the experience of being the “other” so imprinted itself on the Hebrews’ corporate psyche that it partly shaped their legal system. This bible study will also look at other Old Testament passages as well as Gospel accounts detailing how Jesus interacted and “loved the other.”

This study will meet on March 8, 15, 22, and 29 at 6:30 pm in the Ammons-Lolley Commons.
