Our Biblical heroes will be studied within our community groups. If you aren’t a member and would like to be, you can find more information here.
Session 1: Abraham
Abraham shows us that it is always acceptable to ask God questions and express our doubts. In fact, a critical part of our faith is continuing to engage with God in the midst of doubts and questions. Abraham is an example for us of a faith that continues to trust God beyond our own understanding.
Session 1: Perpetua & Felicitas
An account filled with gripping pathos, “The Martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicitas” records the arrest, imprisonment, trials, and execution of a young Roman matron, Perpetua, and her female slave, Felicitas. Remarkably, the first part of the account reproduces Perpetua’s own diary, kept while she was in prison and edited by the anonymous author who provided the concluding story of the martyrdom itself.
Session 2: Rahab
This passage calls us to the higher law of mercy and compassion towards others, even when it means defying authorities. Are there specific people in your life from whom you have withheld mercy and compassion? Who do you need to show mercy and compassion towards today?
Session 2: St. Augustine
“You stir man to take pleasure in praising you, because you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
Session 3: Moses
