A lighting-quick overview of the Old and New Testaments through the lens of common misconceptions, assumptions, and outright blunders. For many people the Bible is just a little bit scary; it's big, it's long, and it's serious business. Even for many of us raised on the Bible there are ways we think about the Bible that aren't terribly helpful, things we think we know about the Bible that are quite right. the reality is that as familiar as the Bible may be to us, most of us don’t know the Bible nearly as well as we think we do. The three sessions of "Everything You Know About the Bible Is Wrong" will help us enter into reading the Bible and making sense of it for our daily living. Pastor Karl Jacobson & Pastor Breckenridge
Young adults (ages ~19-35) are invited to join Deacon Stephanie Anderson-Telschow and Intern Pastor Amy Mihelich Smith as we explore scripture's purpose as both an ancient roadmap for charting the wilderness and as God's way of speaking to us right here, right now. If you're curious to learn more about the basics of making sense of scripture, discuss how and why the Bible is or isn't relevant in our lives, and reflect together on the ways God might be speaking to us in our current time, this group is for you.
Why does Scripture matter at all? There are so many voices in culture right now: Musicians, artists, politicians, activists, thought leaders, entrepreneurs. Why should Scripture be given more weight than all of these?
