Sandy CampbellRespectable Sins
Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? In this booklet adapted from Jerry Bridges' bestselling book Respectable Sins, Jerry returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses these more subtle sins (often considered acceptable) and how to deal with them through the remedy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sins such as jealousy, anger, pride, judgmentalism, and unthankfulness are addressed in this booklet. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.

 

Laurel Blanton - Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

This encouraging book helps you target your prayers on what your son needs most--from patience and self-control to having a pure heart and making wise decisions.

Brandi Mullis - God's people wandered in the wilderness for a long time. They learned about God's provision, His mercy, and His grace. They experienced His protection, His love, and His patience. They also witnessed His wrath and His judgement. Through every lesson and every year, the Israelite people tracked His promises. Everything God said, He did. He does the same for us.  We will spend our weeks tracking the people and the promises of God through the wilderness.  We will be learning all we can about the character of the God who loves us enough to fulfill promises as He walks through the wilderness with us

 

 

 

Teaching for the 2nd half of the semester

Laurel Blanton – Beth Moore  (second part of the semester)

This study will explore questions that God/Christ ask man in Scripture as well as questions that man asks of God/Christ. The Quest is based on the concept that we mortals are "question-marked." Providing support in Scripture for the consideration that being question-marked is not accidental or, in and of itself, sinful. We are hard wired in our humanity with inquiry for the purpose of engagement and engagement for the purpose of intimacy. God who desires to be found created humankind with an innate desire to seek. He who desires to be known by us created us with a yearning to know what (and who) we don't know. Questions are inherent in us as God's image bearers. And questions are utterly essential to the Quest.
