Bible Study with Mother Shayna

What the Bible tells us about the divinity of Jesus Christ

Wednesday evenings, 6 - 7 PM
In the parish house and via Zoom

Want to learn more about God and God’s relationship to humanity and creation as revealed in the stories of the Bible?

Join Mother Shayna in a five-week exploration of Bible passages related to Epiphany* and the various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus, including the coming of the Magi, the Baptism of Our Lord, the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and other miracles and teachings of Jesus.

Participants are encouraged to bring their bibles or borrow one from the church. After the first session, participants are encouraged to do the weekly readings and come with insights, questions and comments.
