The Story Continues

the story graphicEpiscopalians are sometimes accused of not knowing the Bible very well. Perhaps a more accurate question is, “How well do we know the narrative arc of the Bible?” Because we encounter Holy Scripture primarily through our three-year lectionary cycle, we do not often read the story from point A to B and continuing on through to Z, the story of God and God’s people throughout time, or salvation history.

Beginning August 30th, we will use our time together Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15 a.m. this entire school year to read through the narrative of the entire Bible. Our youngest class through our Adult class will all be exploring the same Bible chapters each week. We want families to come and attend their age specific classes so they might have the opportunity to talk through the narrative with each other at home. We want adults who have studied the Bible extensively to come and share their perspective on these readings. We hope this program helps draw our community closer together and we hope that reading the Holy Scriptures in an intentional Anglican way will bring the narrative of the Bible to life.
