The word of God reveals His character. The enemy of good has tempted us to fear God as a severe judge with a harsh, exacting and unforgiving nature. Our connect group is on a quest to rediscover the true loving character of God as manifest in each book of the Bible and revealed in the life and death of His Son. Instead of the circular voyage of life that many seem to be enamored with these days, this quest, the Journey, has a historical beginning and an ultimate goal - from Eden created to Eden restored.
The Journey meets from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Community Room 203.
Short Outline of the Books of Job from the Today's English Version:
Genesis is the book of beginnings – the creation of the world, the human race, the entrance of sin and death, and God’s promise to solve the sin problem. As you read the Book of Genesis and enjoy the familiar stories, look for how God interacts with the people.
