The Good Book Club: Jan. 6 - Mar. 1
Every Thursday, from 01/06/2022 to 03/01/2022, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The Good Book Club Begins Again…Epiphany 2022: January 6th
This year the focus for study will be the book of Exodus. The second book of the Bible, Exodus recounts the journey of the Israelites from slavery to freedom. We hear the great stories of Moses, from his discovery by Pharoah’s daughter on the bank of the river to the burning bush to his presentation of the Ten Commandments. Along the way, we encounter God’s covenant and explore the grand theme of redemption.
This year the Good Book Club will dive into the first twenty chapters of Exodus from Epiphany, January 6, to Shrove Tuesday, March 1. For those who want to keep reading, we’ll offer a daily reading guide and an overview of the second half of Exodus. That reading period will conclude on Easter.
Make plans now to join Forward Movement and partner organizations from across the Episcopal Church to study the book of Exodus during Epiphany.
