Minor Prophets 1 begins in Sept
Encounter a deeper reality through the minor prophets. Expand the borders of your day-to-day existence and discover God’s presence all around you, woven into the fabric of every person, place, and thing God made. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah will show you how every event is stamped with God’s presence. They’ll give you eyes to see the unseen, not only in their ancient sermons but also in your life today.
In the Minor Prophets 1 you'll discover the prophetic testimonies of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah. Written during a period of time ranging from the ninth century B.C. to the fifth, they present a progressive testimony of God's activity in the history of Israel and in the kingdom of God. 12 studies for groups and individuals.
This study will meet on Sundays at 11 am and Thursdays at 6 pm.
Please contact the office to register.  The cost of the book is $10 and is due to the parish office by Sun, 8/29 in order to receive your book.
