There are multiple opportunities for Scripture Study this fall - right here at St. Thomas!
Walking Humbly Wtih God
• Poor exploited by wealthy
• Infidelity and adultery rampant
• Cheating scandals and political upheavals
Headlines from the Chicago Tribune? No, excerpts from Old Testament prophets Amos, Hosea and Micah, pioneers in the transmission of God’s insistence on social justice – the focus of the upcoming Friday Bible Study. What God values and what we do are often at odds. How can we align the two? Fr. Richard Rohr, noted Franciscan teacher and author writes, “If you understand Hebrew Scripture, you can truly understand Jesus.” Start with these three prophets and see how and why Jesus in his ministry was indeed the word of God in the flesh.
Grow your understanding of Amos, Hosea and Micah through the Friday Morning Bible Study, which meets 9:15 to 11:00 a.m. from September 14, 2012 thru May 2013. An orientation for new participants with facilitator Audrey Easton will be held at 9:15 a.m. on September 7.

Go Out in the World:
Acts of the Apostles, the sequel to the Gospel of Luke, will be the focus of the Thursday Adult Bible Studies.
• Connect with Jesus’ first followers
• Explore how apostles formed disciples and how disciples formed communities
• Reflect on the meaning and practice of the Church in our day and time
Interactive sessions of prayer, study and discussion begin September 6 and continue thru May 2013. Choose the time most convenient for you: 9:15 to 11:15 a.m., OR 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. Child care is available mornings. Make a year’s commitment, or drop in when you can. Bring a friend or come to be welcomed by new ones.
