Book Studies

Women of all ages are invited to join Ashley Barlow and Amelia McDaniel for a once-a-month book study on Thursday, September 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Old Parish Hall on Inspired by Rachel Held Evans. “Evans examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.”

Weekly Lectionary Bible Study

The Bible Study meets every Wednesday in the Library from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  Led by parishioner Frank Eakin, Weinstein-Rosenthal Professor of Jewish and Christian Studies at the University of Richmond, each Bible study session focuses on the Lectionary readings assigned for the succeeding Sunday. Anyone who is interested is invited to attend and participate in this vibrant discussion. Consider bringing a Bible in a translation or version that you enjoy reading. While no prior biblical training is required, an open mind and readiness to learn and share insights are always welcome!
