We will be reading and discussing Pastor Anne Robertson’s book, New Vision for an Old Story: Why the Bible Might Not Be the Book You Think It Is . Pastor Anne Robertson was a former minister of our church and is now the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Bible Society.
Dates: Wednesdays, March 13 - April 17 (through Lent)
Time: 7:00 pm
Led by: Pastor Seok-Hwan
Reimbursement for the book is $14 which will be collected on two Sundays ( March 3rd and 10th ) before books are distributed. If you want to read the book on your own or purchase the book on your own and join the discussion group, just let Melva-Jean Shepherd and Bev Welsh know.
“When Anne Robertson asked a bunch of people on the street what came to mind when they heard the word Bible , she was met with a flood of mixed responses—words like wisdom, lies, faith, rules, ancient history, bigotry, poison, and many more.
What she realized was that we all read the Bible through filtered lenses, according to our varied expectations of what the Bible is or should be. But, says Robertson, the Bible as a whole is primarily God’s story —a story of relationship, community, and love.
Robertson’s New Vision for an Old Story gives readers the right lenses to see beyond the printed page to the God who encounters us in dynamic relationship and transforms our lives. The very nature and message of Scripture are rooted in incarnation. When we need to navigate community, truth, fear, and suffering, the Bible— God’s own story—can guide us through it all.”
We hope you can join us for this interesting study!
