Bible Study

Wednesday Bible Study for August
JONAH by Karl N. Jacobson (Author)

The book of Jonah paints a picture of a God who pushes God's people to go beyond religious and ethnic boundaries to share the love and mercy of God with all of God's desire to save all people. This study explores how Jonah offers a vision in which God's love and mercy is not only available to the people of Israel, but to other peoples as well.

This 4-session course explores selected passages from Jonah.
• August 3: 1. Where Was Jonah Going? (Jonah 1:1-17)
• August 10: 2. What Was Jonah Praying? (Jonah 2:1-10)

Looking to September-October
The Wednesday Bible Study will go through the book: Together By Grace: Introducing the Lutherans, edited by Kathryn A. Kleinhans.

We will spend six sessions exploring the various essays found in this volume introducing the Lutheran heritage. Yes, Lutheranism has roots in Northern Europe, but the people called Lutherans offer liberating insights into Christian faith, encompass a worldwide reach, and tell a story that goes back more than 500 years while pointing to the future.

Session 1: The Faith We Confess,” pages 9-45
Session 2: “From the Sixteenth Century to Today,” pages 47-84
Session 3: “Worship and the Arts,” pages 85-112
Session 4: “Faith Active in Love,” pages 113-146
Session 5: “Being Lutheran Together in a Wider World,” pages 147-174
Session 6: “Voices and Places: Stories from the Global Lutheran Family,” pages 175-204



Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.

Just as love of God begins with listening to his word, so the beginning of love for our brothers and sisters is learning to listen to them.
―  (Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Life Together)

We Are Becoming

This life is not devoutness, but becoming devout;

not health, but becoming healthy;
not being, but becoming, and
not resting, but doing.

We are not yet what we should be, but we are becoming what we should be.

Martin Luther, Meditation on Philippians 3:13
