Spring (April issuance / March 1st renewal due)

An Abiding Hope: The Presence of God in Exodus & Deuteronomy

An ecumenical Bible study in nine sessions by Janice Catron. The books of Exodus and Deuteronomy invite us to remember that the central actor in human experience – in our own lives and in the experiences described in Exodus and Deuteronomy – is God. Our God is one who redeems, who brings liberty and fulfillment even when we do not deserve it, when we cannot redeem ourselves. We have the assurance of God’s abiding presence as individuals and as a community of faith. This presence helps us see that God’s redemption is more than a “saving from” harsh circumstances; it also is “saving to” the fullness of life God intends for humanity.
