God Invites Us (September 13, 20 & 27)
In the biblical world there is no more binding relationship than that established by a covenant. The amazing God of Israel invited his people into just such an alliance. How does that still have meaning for us today?

How Are We Community? (October 4, 11, 18 & 25 and November 1, 8, 15, & 22)
From tribal life to monarchy to exile, God’s people keep redefining community until Jesus announces: “Now is the time”. His disciples receive a message that they carry out to the world. Both the gospel of Matthew and the Book of Acts trace this evolution of community in ways that we must take into our living of church. This is both fascinating and practical.

And the Word Became Flesh (November 29 and December 6, 13 & 20)
Each year Advent reminds us of the daring action of God on our behalf as we are invited to come closer. It is an age-old journey that is never finished.

To Tend It and To Keep It (January 3, 10, 17 & 24)
God entrusted the care of the earth to those who walked upon it. We need to rediscover the biblical roots of ecology.

Looking Beyond (February 7, 14, 21, 28 and March 6, 13 & 20)
Luke’s gospel with its challenges to see the outsider as a potential insider will be our Lenten study. Firmly yet clearly, Jesus teaches that fellowship takes us beyond our comfort zone of the familiar into the diversity of newness.

How Did They Do It? (April 3, 10, 17 & 24)
How did women like Esther, Sarah, the wife of Tobias, Mary of Magdala, Phoebe and others find their voices and their identity in a largely patriarchal world? Their struggles and their accomplishments challenge us to ask some very pertinent questions about our own living of the gruth.

And What Does Revelation Reveal? (May 1, 8, 15 & 22)
This often discussed, much misunderstood last book of the Bible has little to say about the end of time, but much to say about living into that time. For what should we be ready?

TBA (June 5 & 12)
