Bible Works: Tools for Living - The Book of Genesis

Led by The Rev. Jim Adams

In this Bible study, we take an in-depth look at Genesis, the fascinating first book of the Bible. The primal stories of Genesis - God's creation of the universe, Adam and Eve in the garden, humanity's fall, Noah and the great flood, the promise to Abraham and Sarah, the sacrifice of Isaac, Jacob wrestling with the Angel, and Joseph and his coat of many colors - have intrigued and inspired people of faith for millennia.

Genesis evokes thoughtful insights into the purposes of God, the nature of humanity, and the need of the entire creation for a savior.

Bible Works will be offered each Tuesday, from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m., and from noon until 1 p.m. in the Parish Hall; the same lecture is presented at these two different times for the convenience of the participants. On Tuesday mornings, we'll gather for coffee and biscuits between 7 a.m. and 7:15 a.m., with the teaching beginning promptly at 7:15 a.m. and ending so that participants will be on their way to other commitments at 8 a.m. We encourage attendees to bring their own lunch for the noon session and chips and beverages are provided. Teaching will begin at 12:15 p.m.

Our study of Genesis will run from Nov. 7 through mid-June. All are welcome!

Due to a technical error, the Bible Works recording for Dec. 5, is unavailable. However, The Rev. Jim Adams begins the Dec. 12, recording with a complete summary of the previous week's lesson.

Oct. 24 & 31: Celtic Christian Traditions

Led by The Rev. Jim Adams

On Oct. 24 and 31, The Rev. Jim Adams led a two-part series on Celtic Christian Traditions. Having just returned from a three-week pilgrimage to Ireland, our rector offered insights from Celtic Christian tradition — its distinctive approach to the life of faith, its beautiful prayer practices, and the inspiration it draws from the Gospels. Using photographs from Ireland, Jim shared some highlights from his pilgrimage and give us a brief introduction to Celtic Christianity and its relevance for us today.
