Letting the Bible Speak to You
Do you read a passage and say, “Huh?”
Do you feel that you need to have a
scholar or study guide interpret for you?
Does your lack of biblical knowledge
keep you quiet during discussions?
If any of these statements describe you,
consider attending a three-week introductory
course on “The ABC Strategy for Studying the Bible”.
The emphasis of this study is on
accessible, practical, personal application of scripture.
The goal is a sense of expectation
of meeting with God when you sit
down with the Word.

You've Got Mail: A Letter from James
James, the brother of Jesus, has written
us a letter that closely follows that of Jesus’
Sermon on the Mount.
It reads like a collection of short homilies and deals with
issues that we struggle with today such as
snobbery, an uncontrolled tongue,trusting in material
prosperity and more.
Using the ABC Strategy for studying the Bible,
we allow James to speak to us directly.

so why do so many of us find it hard

God, others, the world and even our souls.
This book is both inspirational and practical.
