The Letters of John

After pausing during the Alpha class and Holy Week, the in-person weekly Thursday afternoon Bible Study meetings are resuming at 3:00 p.m. on April 28th in the downstairs altar guild room. Our continuing study will cover  the last four lessons left in our study guide on the letters of John – beginning with Week 9, 2 John:1-6. These lessons will take us through May 19th and then we can turn our thoughts toward our summer dinners and book discussions.
For those not ready or able to meet in person, there will be a live zoom. If more than 2 people are zooming, we will stop and restart after 40 minutes. The invitation to zoom is sent by email to those who have signed up.
New-comers to our meetings are always warmly welcomed.  For more information, please contact info@goodshepherdrichmond.org .
(We are a relaxed group of friendly people who enjoy our time together as we study the Word of God.)

We resumed our study – both face to face and on zoom – Thursday, Nov. 4, at 3:00 in the Altar Guild Room downstairs. We have chosen to begin with the letters of John.The first lesson from a guide by Michael Lefebvre is attached here: John 1-3 Study.  Ten copies of the book have been ordered from Amazon for anyone wanting a copy.  They are $10.00 each.
“Do as much or as little as your personal time allows and remember you are always welcomed.  We promise NOT to check homework! “See” you on Thursday afternoons at 3:00. I hope your schedule allows you to join us.” (We are a relaxed group of friendly people who enjoy our time together as we study the Word of God.)

Summer 2021: Book Club

Our second book selection was Into The Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart by James R. Doty. Please plan on joining us for a pot luck dinner and book discussion Tuesday July 27th, 6:00 pm at a member’s home.
On Thursday June 17th we discussed our first book, a work of fiction, “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd. This book, set in first century Galilee, proves controversial due to the characterization of Jesus as a young man within the narrative. The focus of our book discussion centered on  women’s voices in this time, place, and culture. We gathered at a member’s home at 6:00 pm for a light supper and discussion. Each brought a dish to share.
