    The Wednesday morning Bible Study group has reached the end of their study of the Book of Hebrews.  As usual, it was an enriching and lively study -- also somewhat sad as two of our regular members passed away during the thirteen weeks of the session.
    We took a bit of a break this Wednesday and watched a video,
"Drive Thru History -- Holy Land with Dave Stotts."  As well as showing us  various archaeological sites described in the Bible, the video made us chuckle.  Dave has a real thing for his Fiat 500!
   Next week we begin a six week study of John Stott's  Basic Christianity.  This is an old book and may well be already on your shelf.  It may have a different cover too, but the content is the same.  It's a classic because it speaks a truth that is timeless.  It's also fairly dense.  I welcome the opportunity to work through it in a study group!  As usual, Rev. Irwin will lead the study. He's a terrific teacher, able to make complex theology accessible to the layman.
    The book, "Basic Christianity," is available for purchase but is not necessary to the study.  If you haven't already picked up a copy of the study guide, it will be available on Wednesday too.  Biblical passages for the sessions include Mark 10:17-31, John 8: 51-58 and 1Peter 2:21-25 to name a few.  Topics include the claims of Christ, the character of Christ, and the Resurrection of Christ.

    The Bible Study is open to all and you don't have to sign up for the whole series.  Try it out, come once or as often as you like.  Coffee's on and there are terrific goodies.
