Wednesday Morning Bible Study
The Wednesday Morning Bible Study has just begun a study on the book of Esther, an exciting story filled with all the drama of a royal court. We’ll discuss issues of power and powerlessness, how this story intersects positively and negatively with feminist concerns, what this story has to say to people living in oppression, and how this story might affect our view of how God works in the world. And after studying the Book of Esther found in our Old Testament, we’ll look at Esther with Additions-a Greek version of Esther featuring several additions to the Hebrew text and found among the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books. If these additions were added by Jewish readers who were disturbed by Esther in its original form, what do they bring to the story? Most of all, we’ll gather to see what the Spirit may be saying to us through the study of scripture. All are welcome to join!

or 968-3622) or you can write the names on a sheet titled “For Remembrance on All Saints’ Sunday” in the Narthex of the church.
