Online Scripture Study at the Benedictine Peace Center
Fall 2021 Wednesday Morning Study — The Book of Exodus, Part 1
Wednesday Mornings, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Central Time
Five Sessions, Tentative dates: October 6 – November 3, 2021
Four Sessions, Lent 2022
The Exodus is a foundational event of the Old Testament giving meaning to everything else we find in it. In Part 1 of this study we explore the first 15 chapters of this book. In them we learn how God calls Moses to intercede for his people in slavery. Following the plagues he led them through the sea into the Sinai desert where they are formed as a people of God. What is the significance of these chapters for Christians today? What are we invited to learn from them for our life’s journey?
Each of the five sessions, held online on Wednesday mornings, will include study, reflection, discussion, YouTubes and prayer using materials from the Little Rock Scripture Study. S. Doris Oberembt will be your facilitator.
For more information and to register, contact S. Doris at 605-668-6022 or [email protected]. Pre-registration is required so that books may be ordered.
The Word of God is Alive and Active!
What do the the Scriptures mean for my life? How can something written 2000 years ago speak to me today? What can these strange stories, with old fashioned examples, tell me about how I should live? The answer is that we believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well, and speaks to us through the Bible as we are able to hear. “The Word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:22).” In our sharing groups, we may learn about the times and places of the Bible, but more importantly, we share and pray about how these words can shape our lives today.
