Adult Study – Fall 2020

New Vision for an Old Story:

Why the Bible Might Not Be the Book You Think It Is

by The Rev. Anne Roberston

September 27 – November 15, 9:00 am

When you hear the word, “Bible,” what comes to mind?  Wisdom, Truth or Love?  Or Myth, Lies, Bigotry or even Poison?

Our next Adult Class will be all about how we have seen the Bible, and how we might see the Bible differently.  In New Vision for an Old Story – Why the Bible Might Not Be the Book You Think It Is, written by the former director of the Massachusetts Bible Society and now pastor of a United Methodist Church in Winchester, Massachusetts, Reverend Anne Robertson takes us on a journey from seeing the Bible as either law, science or as textbook to understanding the Bible as God’s story of relationship, community and redemption.

Since early August, we have heard some of Rev. Anne’s special lens through which she understands and explains the stories contained in the Bible.   Join us starting on September 20 for our virtual class to perhaps see and understand the Bible differently, perhaps for the first time.

Zoom will be open at 8:55 am so that class can be done in time for the 10:00 am worship service.
