There are many ways to read the Bible -- for historical and scientific truth, to prove you are right and everyone else is wrong, for apologetics defending your church's dogma. But what if we read it for what it is, the story of God's love for us? That is exactly what we will be tackling in the next year, looking at the stories of the Bible thru the lens of God's love for us. We'll tackle the clobber verses, the not-so-nice verses, the beautiful stories, the moving ones, and even the disturbing ones; all in an effort to come away knowing why this one book as inspired billions of people down thru the ages. So come join us as we explore, as we learn, and as we discover the heights and the depths of God's love.
