Luke

This Sunday (January 15) is the Second Sunday in Epiphany and the Reverend Wes Denyer will begin a mini-series around our relationship to scripture and will be preaching a sermon entitled “How the Bible Came to Be.” The Bible is not a book written by a single author, but a collection of narratives, hymn lyrics, poetry, prophecies and letters written down over a period of several hundred years. People often find the Bible challenging and confusing to read, sometimes with different passages seemingly contradicting one another. This Sunday we will consider some of the ways in which the Bible comes to us in its present form, how we understand it, and, perhaps most significantly, how we might make it a living part of our faith today.

The Order of Service including announcements has been posted here. Music notes have been posted here.
