The What, How, and Whys of the Bible

Have you ever wondered:

  • Who wrote the Bible?
  • Why did they write the Bible?
  • What language was the Bible written in?
  • Who decided what was included and what wasn’t?
  • How can I read the Bible in a way that makes sense today?
  • What difference does it make anyway?

You’re in the right place!

Anyone and everyone is invited to join us as we learn together. If you don’t know anything at all about the Bible, this is your chance to start! If you think you know everything about the Bible, we challenge you to discover something new about it! If you’re somewhere in between, come on over and experience the life-changing story of the Bible again. Spread the word! Invite your friends and family and neighbors.

Here’s our project in a nutshell:

Look for God working in the world around you. Look for evidence that God loves humanity. Look for evidence that God is working through the people around you. Try to see what mischief God is up to in your home, your neighborhood, and in the church! When you spot these things, I want you to document them in one of these ways so that we can use them in a collage that will be set up at church:

Here are some examples of things that struck me this week as I was looking through the recent photos on my phone. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! God is moving, dear ones!
