Wednesday Bible Study
Consider the Birds • April 8–29 • 6:00 p.m. • Crouch Chapel • Led by Tommy Bratton
Birds are everywhere in the Bible — the dove, the pelican, the eagle, the sparrow, the rooster, the hen, the raven, and more. Jesus tells us “to consider the birds” (Matthew 6:26), so in this study we will explore the prominent places that birds occupy scriptural narratives and discover how they help us discern new layers of meaning as we read the Bible.
Debbie Blue writes, “People identify with birds. We watch them, research them, tell stories about them . . . Once you start looking for birds, you will find them everywhere . . . I believe it is the same way with the grace of God — when you start paying attention, you’ll discover it in places you hadn’t noticed it before. It may make your heart race, or help you breathe. It can free you from anxiety (at least now and again.)”
April 8-29 • Room MB304
This group is for parents and/or grandparents who are looking for authentic conversations about living the life of faith in their daily, ordinary life as a family. We will explore how we see God working in the lives of our families, how we can encourage one another along the often inconsistent journey of life and faith, and how we can be intentional about the rhythm of our daily life together. Everyday events — conversations in the car, sharing a meal together, performing chores (or not), laughing together, creating family rituals — all have the potential to be sacred moments. These experiences become lodged in our children’s memories and form who they will become and how their lives and souls will be enriched.
