Upcoming Bible Studies
Women’s Bible Study
Have you ever thought that being a good follower of Jesus you had to follow a set of rules and measure up? That by doing these two things you would then be worthy to follow Jesus? Even the believers in the early church struggled to find a balance between observation and acceptance of God’s gift of grace. For our fall Women’s Bible Study and Sharing, we will take a close look at Paul’s Letter to the Galatians as well as the material found in the book that we will be using. The book is Breakthrough: A Study of Galatians by Barb Roose. The book is available on Kindle and paperback through Amazon and other booksellers. We will meet on Wednesday Evenings starting on September 21st until November 9th at 7:00 PM in the Berry Room of Hendrick’s Hall. Please register by September 1st, so that I know how to set up the small groups. Email Sr. Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or for additional information.
Mystery of the Incarnation
In this video course – An Astonishing Secret: Glimpses of Incarnation, we offer precious and life-changing insights about Creation, Incarnation, and our own divine hearts. We take a fresh look at all we treasure and hold dear. As theology, new scientific discoveries and spirituality dialog amazing things happen. Radical new light is today being shed on that moment of divine love 2000 years ago – the Incarnation – when God was revealed at the center of humanity in the person of Jesus. And, long before that, on a much earlier astonishing moment when God first became incarnate in Creation itself. In ten episodes we try to glimpse the dynamic meaning of those two moments of the revelation of God, and to reveal their implications for us – personally and universally. A deeper understanding of this central heart of Christianity may transform our self-understanding and our understanding of our planet Earth. This is the revolutionary change in Catholic consciousness that is beginning to transform Christianity from within. This is the ‘magnanimous’ horizon painted by Pope Francis – the re-framing of the story of Christ within our daily experiences, and within the wondrous story of our evolving universe. We will use the words of Pope Francis, especially from Laudato Si and a book and videos written by Daniel O’Leary: An Astonishing Secret: The Love Story of Creation and the Wonder of You. (Book is available from Amazon).
Tuesday Mornings, September 13—November 15, (after 9 AM Mass) until 11:15 AM in the Berry Room or for women only from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM in the Carr Room. In order to have enough materials you do need to register by September 2nd. (Register: email@example.com) –Sister Teresa
