Next Sonrise Meeting: 1.8.08

Hi, Friends!

Remember our next Sonrise Bible Study meeting is this Tuesday at 8:15. We're meeting at 121 Community Church in Grapevine. We are just launching a "How to Study the Bible" series and would love to have you join us! We'll be working from Oletta Wald's The New Joy of Discovery in the Bible Study. Scroll down a couple posts for a peek at the cover.

A major goal of our study is to equip one another to explore God's word independently. We'll be learning a simple approach to getting into the Bible and sharpening our powers of observation and interpretation. Most importantly, we will look at how we apply what we discover to daily living, relationships and our all-important spiritual life... developing skills to better understand not only what God has revealed through Scripture... but what He is saying to you as you navigate and explore his indescribably wondrous Word.

On Tuesday, would be great if you could bring:

1. Bible
2. One Bible study "tool" (e.g., alternate Bible translation, concordance, commentary, dictionary, favorite website, etc.)
3. Note paper/pen

We'll be reading Chapters 1-2 (don't panic... they are short :) in Wald's book for the following week... so you will want to order the book ASAP if you haven't already.

Looking so forward to our discoveries, dear friends!

Love, Sarah

p.s. A huge "thank-you" to everyone who participated in the Ronald McDonald House meal delivery last week. There was a lot of love that came from your kitchens. It was a beautiful sight...
