Monday Morning Bible Study via Zoom
On April 17 the Monday Bible Class began a new study called ”An Odd Couple, Jonah and Ruth: Lessons for Our Fractured World”. The book of Jonah uses the character of an outrageous excuse of a prophet to show the leaders and people of Judah just how foolish they looked with their insistence on isolationism and the exclusion of "the other." It asks the question "If God loves the outsider, shouldn't we?" The book of Ruth is an idealized story of what life would look like if God's people treated each other with His loving-kindness—insiders and outsiders alike. A key understanding in Ruth is that God uses these acts of the loving-kindness of people to demonstrate that which God gives to all, whether they realize it or not. Class meets on Mondays 10-11:30 on Zoom and all are welcome to join us. Jonah and Ruth Resource books can be purchased for $25 in the church office.
