Living the Story

The Bible can be so intimidating. It was originally written in Hebrew and Greek, meaning we have dozens of translations. There are 66 different books within it, and 1,189 chapters and 31,102 verses! It can be overwhelming!
Not to mention that the Bible is not just any old book. This book is a means of grace for us, a revelation from God. As our United Methodist Book of Discipline puts it, “The Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation”. When we engage with Scripture, something is at stake! It is not meant to be a book that we merely read, but also a book that we live!
To help us step more fully into God’s word, this Fall at St. James we will be exploring a series entitled “Living the Story”. We hope to share the overarching story of the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, with an eye throughout on how we are called to make the scriptural story our own story.
We look forward to exploring God’s word with you!
In Christ, Pastors Ben & Mark
