Grace Hour is your weekly time to check-in and to explore your faith from the foundation up.

Have you ever wanted to get to know the Bible better, but you weren’t quite sure how to go about it?

This is where we will begin this fall.  So bring a Bible of some sort, whether it is on your phone, a devotional Bible, or a sturdy Study Bible.

Be prepared to find some clarity and to be equipped with some new strategies for understanding scripture better.  Also, be prepared to be puzzled.  The Bible will always puzzle us because it is the work of limited human beings trying to point toward a God who is limitless, whose presence and grace is always somewhat beyond our understanding.  Allow your puzzlement to keep you coming back, and you will always find new insights.

As the author of Hebrews writes, “Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Heb 4:12).  The word of God is a word that is living and active today and everyday.  It is not, however, always a calming or comforting word, because it knows and sees us.  It is like a mirror that shows us our human selves, with all of our flaws and beauty, and calls us to into being fully human: fully in relationship with others, with creation, and with God, that is, into goodness.  Reading scripture, therefore, is creative work.  When we read scripture together, the Word is at work in and among us breaking down the things that separate and making us a new creation.

Come, and let God’s word make you new.
