Friday Study Group

Our weekly bible study group meets on Fridays from 10:15 to 11:45 at Queen’s Court (someone will greet you at the door).  New members are always welcome.  Contact the church office or Beth to find out what chapter we are on.

This year we are exploring Marcus Borg’s book Convictions. Borg wrote this book when he turned 70 to explore what he had learned about faith and life over the span of his life. We will use his book to help us explore what we believe and how our faith has changed over the span of our lives. Join us to consider such questions as:

  • How has the faith of your ancestors contributed to your faith journey?
  • What was your favourite Bible Story as a child?
  • How do we avoid treating the Bible like a buffet, a smorgasbord, a cafeteria from which we choose what we like and leave the rest off our plate?
  • Where in the world today do people need to be liberated from oppression or slavery to modern day Pharaohs?
  • What does Easter mean to you? and
  • What would “justice rolling down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” look like in today’s world?

Each week will have a short reading  from the book as well as 1 or 2 scripture passages to read in preparation.  If you cannot come one week, you can read the section in the book to stay connected with what the group will be talking about.  The book is available from McNally RobinsonAmazonChapters as both a print book and an ebook.   We will be placing an order for books mid-September through the church.  If you would like to have us order the book for you, please contact the church office as soon as possible.  We have also put one copy of the book on reserve in the Trinity library so that those who don’t want to own their own copy can come in some time during the week to read the chapter for the week.
