Clear as Mud?
I know that there have been plenty of times when I've misheard what someone said (or sang) or misunderstood what they meant. In most cases, it's not that big of a deal with little lasting consequence. But what about God's Word? What if we don't understand what it's saying and how to apply it to our lives? That could have serious consequences.
The good news is that Scripture is very clear in communicating the Gospel and how to live in a right relationship with God and others. If there's a problem, it lies with us. That may sound harsh, but much of our issues have to do with how we approach reading God's Word. If we are careful in how we read, the Holy Spirit will be able to clearly illuminate it's Truth to us. That's what we'll be talking about this coming Sunday, September 25th. I hope you'll be able to join us.
What would happen if we actually read the Bible? Not a verse here or there, but the whole New Testament? What if, instead of going it alone, we could have a real conversation about the Bible—one anyone can join, no matter where they are in their faith journey?
Community Bible Experience is about reading the Bible as it was meant to be read—whole books, in community. It will take your church beyond Bible study, beyond reading in fragments, and beyond reading in isolation.
Discover the complete story. For eight weeks, starting this Monday, September 26th, let’s read big, read real, and read together.
On Sunday there will be information about some "book club-style" small groups that will be meeting as a part of this eight week experience. But there's no reason why you can't simply form your own. No special materials are needed - just a place to meet, a few friends, and your shared thoughts and questions.
Physical copies of this unique design of the New Testament are only $5. We've ordered more and they should arrive some time next week, but you can download free digital versions as well as audio versions and much more by going to cbe/covchurch.org
