We are planning to make 2020 the “Year of the Bible;” youth and adults alike, studying and exploring the text and stories from as many perspectives as possible. We will utilize a book entitled The Story to help us familiarize ourselves with the main narrative of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. Pastor Mary Sue will preach on the book’s chapters, and all will be invited to engage with the stories. As The Story represents a more conservative theological perspective than our UCC denomination espouses, we will note the different ways that Scripture has been interpreted (and misinterpreted, at times), and the ways those interpretations have been used in harmful ways. We are excited for the year of exploration ahead, as we learn and grow together. God is still speaking, so here’s to listening and growing together in 2020!
