Exploring the Bible
Through Living Discipleship: Exploring the Bible, you will discover anew the wonderful, rich, extraordinary, sometimes mysterious story of the Bible: the story of how God creates, redeems, and sustains us, a story of hope. As people join in reading the Bible together, as the whole Church listens to what God has to say to us, we deepen our life together and live more fully into the people God intends us to be. Scripture is God’s word, God’s communication to us. Through Living Discipleship: Exploring the Bible, our church engages in a faithful act of listening: listening to the story of salvation, told from the beginning of time; listening to what God has said to faithful women and men around the world and through the ages; and listening to what God is saying to us, here and now, through these most holy stories.
