Our final Adult Studies unit for the year begins in late April:
“You Mean That’s Not in the Bible?”
Mondays: April 22 and 29; May 6 and 20
Wightman Lounge, 7:30-8:30pm
You know them - the sayings and aphorisms so many Christians and non-Christians alike swear by – ones like:
“God helps those who help themselves.”
“Everything happens for a reason.”
Many Christians and non-Christians also believe those sayings come directly from the Bible. But they, and others like them, don’t. During this four-week unit based on Adam Hamilton’s book, “Half Truths”, we will explore these and other common sayings that people of faith are often extremely invested in, but that are only partly or minimally rooted in the Bible. We will examine the elements of truth they contain, as well as the ways in which they may fail us spiritually.
