Bible Study

Here is an opportunity to meet with others to study the Bible, share life stories, and build strong ties of friendship and support.

Every year, the PC (USA) offers a themed Bible study through the Horizons program, sponsored by the Presbyterian Women Organization.  San Francisco Theological Seminary hosts an introductory seminar on the second Saturday of every September featuring  the author of the year’s study as the primary speaker.  Watch here for more information on the 2015 seminar.

For the academic year of 2014-2015, the book is called “Reconciling Paul: A Contemporary Study of 2 Corinthians” by Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty.

Paul’s writings are some of the most influential in Christianity.  Revisiting the struggles Paul faced and the authenticity and integrity of his theology is an essential task for churches today in the midst of great change.  Paul, like us, wrestled with and questioned his faith as he tried to live as authentically as possible in an ancient world that, like ours, was also in the midst of great change. What can we learn from visiting 2 Corinthians and considering Paul’s theology and ideas as they relate to the context of our time?
Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty invites us all to read Paul’s letter afresh in light of today’s issues. Concepts of shared partnership, power in weakness, healing, reconciliation, love, and a new apostolate all figure prominently in her reading of Paul.

Led by Pastor Joanne Whitt, the ongoing study group meets on the second Wednesday of the month through June 2015 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm in the library. All are welcome.
