ClayTerrace Bible Study finishes Revelation, Starts Corinthians

This coming Friday...  Join us a few minutes before 8am (Eastern) in the Zoom-roomAsk your questions - during the recorded study, or afterward as we just hang-out in the 'parking-lot' enjoying conversation together.  We'd love to have you.  We're all at different levels, some pastors in the room, and some who are first-timers.  We all come from various backgrounds -- often we may have never heard from another culture or theological perspective.  So we sharpen each other as we study the Word of God... together.  No question is insignificant.  Or let us know how we could pray for you or your family.  We like praying for each other, our neighbors and our community.

May 15, 2020 Revelation Part 1:  How we will approach a study of Revelation.

No, we're not studying this apocalyptic book because of the current #COVID19 pandemic.  *smile*  We have now simply come to the Book of Revelation after progressing through Hebrews, James, Peter(s), John(s), and Jude.  So now... Revelation.

So today (5/15/2020) we grappled with some of our own presuppositions and hermeneutics -- how we read/interpret scripture.  Often we may not even think we have such -- although we often think 'the other guy' does have them.  So it's a great conversation to have.  And because we're a very diverse set of people, we will likely enter into this study with very different points of view.

This Overview document helped us with those questions, and this chart helped us visuialize the primary 4 timeline views among Christians.

But that's how we sharpen one another -- hanging in there together, listening and learning, as we process God's communication to us.  So join us any Friday 8am in the zoom room...  Bring your questions and curiosity.

And as always, we're collaboratively making notes, adding helpful diagrams, links to handouts, maps, and posing our questions... all in our Google-Doc for this ClayTerrace Bible Study group.  Check it out...  Maybe even add a question about Revelation... or any of the Bible... that's been on your mind.  We'd love to hear your questions...

A great discussion and application of Philemon-Colossians

As always, we invite any of you who want to study the bible with us, please do.  We meet every Friday, 8am (til 8:59am).  Our Zoom 'doors' open 15 mins early -- so come early, get to know some new friends & neighbors.  Bring your questions... and/or your prayer-requests.  It's a great group who care about our neighbors, our city, and even our metro area.  Here's the meeting link...

And now, from this morning's important study & discussion...

Have you read the Book of Philemon lately? (It's a quick read: 25 verses)
We encourage you to take a closer look for yourselves, and not simply accept the story-line you may have heard or read in commentaries.  At what point have our cultural biases crept into the way we characterize people?  Ok, let's dig in...

It's #GoodFriday at ClayTerrace...

Here's a chance for anyone to 'sit-in' on our diverse Friday 8am Bible-study here on Good Friday, as we cover the latter portion of the Book of Jude -- the brother of Christ, originally an atheist, and now suddenly after Christ's resurrection, a strong believer calling him Master, Savior and Lord...

And here's how YOU could join us via Zoom,
any #Fri8am (Eastern)
Bring your bible questions, even!
We always have 2 or 3 pastors,
from different churches/perspectives,
to sharpen us all in God's word.

Moving our Friday Bible-study coffee-time --> to Zoom. Join us!

Our Fridays @ClayTerrace Bible-study & coffee-time is now moving to Zoom... the video-conference platform. 

How many of you remember the tv show 'Brady Bunch' and its opening song & 'brady-bunch' screen?  Well that's pretty much how Zoom will look when you join with others here in the area to read & ask questions about the Bible passage we're on.

We'd love to have you join us -- especially during this unique situation we're in, when we could ALL use a little more hope & encouragement.  I could.  How about you?  *smile*

Btw, we're comprised of folks from different churches.  Even a couple or three pastors from different churches.  So it's a diverse group, with some diverse points-of-view.  And we have fun being 'together'.

So here's the info:

It will be easy to participate: We'll open the zoom meeting room every Friday at 7:30am (Eastern). Come in anytime, get to know others -- check your technology, etc. Bible-study starts promptly at 8am (Eastern).

#Neighboring .. during COVID-19 situation

Hope you all will weather this situation well, and together, looking out for each other, now in our smaller, more close-to-home relationships.  Amen?

So hey, reach out to your neighbors and get textable or emailable contact info.  Then check in on your neighbors from time to time, for encouragement and for actionable caring.

For instance, my sister (in another city) has a "stoep-drop" protocol with her friends & neighbors.  As needed, friends can easily drop off needed food or supplies.

We would be interested in your best-practices as you come up with some.  Comment below, or drop me a line...

Be blessed, all.  And know we're here for you, as best we possibly can.  #bettertogether

That is always the freshest info for us.
