I am excited to announce that we are embarking on a new teaching series exploring the stories of men and women in the Bible. Through this series, we will delve into the lives, roles, and contributions of these Biblical figures and examine the relationships between men and women as portrayed in the Scriptures.
Throughout the series, we will explore a wide range of topics, including leadership, family dynamics, cultural contexts, and gender roles. We will examine the lives of both well-known figures and lesser-known characters, and consider how their stories can inspire and inform our own lives.
As we explore these topics, I hope that we will gain new insights into the nature of God, the complexities of human relationships, and the power of faith and redemption. My hope is that this series will help us to better understand and appreciate the rich diversity of experiences and perspectives represented in the Bible.
I encourage you to join us in this journey of exploration and discovery. Whether you are a long-time member of our congregation or new to the community, there will be something for everyone in this series. I look forward to learning and growing together as we explore the stories of men and women in the Bible.
One note of caution and explanation. This issue can be controversial and has caused division in Christendom. Our goal for is not to find a ‘position’ as such. Instead, we want to explore together, understand God and each other better. If that means at the end of this project that we need to change some of our beliefs and ways we practice our faith then that will be all well and good. But it is not our goal. The goal is to learn from our heavenly father, and one another, and then honour our Lord.
God bless, Malcolm
