Topic: 4 PART SERIES

THE MOST BORING BOOK IN THE OLD TESTAMENT: Only it isn’t…and here’s why…

It may not entirely convince you that it is NOT the “most boring book” on the Old Testament…and to be honest, the jury is out for me, too, on this question.  However, to my surprise, here are four issues that I think are really very interesting – all dealing precisely with ideas, images, and stories from Numbers.  Some controversial, but ALL are intriguing.  So, I invite my Brentwood family to come along and make some discoveries with me…from the “problem with Priests”, to the discovery in 1967 of an ancient inscription on the demolished wall of an old building in Jordan, to lots of grisly violence (Hollywood would love it), we will look at a ‘Number’ of reasons (you see how I did that, right?) why the book is worth reading!!

Speaker:  Rev. Dr. Judy Siker
 
Topic: “Bread and Water for the Journey”
While the current state of affairs has left many of us reeling, the constraints of the pandemic have also given many of us time to ponder our common humanity, to rethink our understanding of what we need versus what we want, and to witness the revelation of God in new and unexpected ways. Using John 6:1-21 as our springboard, let’s take a fresh look together at the grace of God made manifest in meeting basic human needs.

Topic: “Love in an Age of Polarization”
Darkness can not drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
 
Explore what it means as followers of Jesus Christ to bring light and love into a fiercely divided country. How do we begin to have conversations with people we don’t understand, let alone grapple with what it might mean to actually “love our enemies”?
