The BB&B Bible study group meets on Thursdays at noon in the Sara Davis Stribling classroom, They meet not only to study scripture. They also share concerns, support one another, and offer up prayers for the community of Seneca Presbyterian Church.
Collectively, the group decides on a topic of study, which is typically a book of the Bible. In recent years, this group has studied the Gospel of Matthew, several letters of Paul, and the book of Isaiah.
They are beginning to study on April 19: Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times by Adam Hamilton. Drawing on recent research, inspiring real-life examples, and fresh biblical insight, Hamilton shows how to untangle the knots we feel about disappointing others, failure, financial insecurity, loneliness, insignificance, and aging. Then he helps readers understand and counter fears related to such outsize perils as terrorism, death, and the apocalypse.
Because they take their study seriously and patiently, it may take a year or more to work through a book of the Bible. It's not because they are slow learners! It is because this group is open to questions, to discussion, and to discerning together what the Spirit might be saying to us.
Newcomers are always welcome to join in. Feel free to bring your lunch - and your questions, concerns, prayers, and insight.
