“The Things that Make For Peace” Bible Study Sunday Mornings

Click HERE for the 9/27/2020 handout.

It often takes work to be people who are prepared to work for peace, particularly in emotionally charged situations. To be effective in sharing peace and not becoming caught up in the passion and fear, we have to prepare ourselves and have an understanding of how to make peace. This bible study will take five weeks to explore these processes. Using a resource from the Presbyterian Mission Agency, we will explore what the scriptures teach us about being people who make peace.

These classes will take place virtually as part of our Sunday morning Education experience, beginning with Sunday, September 13, 2020 and running through October 11.  It will be a zoom program which to which people can connect using a computer, tablet, smartphone, or by telephone.  If you have questions contact Pastor Jack at revjharrison@fdlpresbyterian.org.

Sermon:           “Heaping Burning Coals”

Theme:            We overcome the problems and challenges of the Coronavirus and troubles of today through practicing God’s instructions of compassion as we build endurance through faith.

Purpose:          We will learn to be strong as we do what is good and care for one another.

Scriptures:       Hebrews 10:23-35       Let us hold fast to our confession without wavering, because Jesus is faithful. Provoke one another to do good works.

                        Romans 12:9-21  Bless those who persecute you, do not repay evil for evil, heap burning coals upon the head of your enemy.

Questions: What does it mean to “heap burning coals” on the head of your enemy? What do we need to do in order that we can more than survive this time of the Coronavirus? What is it mean to more than endure, we can show God’s compassion? How do we demonstrate the knowledge of God and love of God without being rude or pushy? What is Jesus teaching us to do through this time when we are having to give up so much?

03/08/2020 Second Sunday of Lent

Sermon:                       God’s Call to a New Place

Theme:            We are called to a new, better life of wholeness, healthy relationships, love, and peace.

Purpose:          We will commit to changes that will open us to new possibilities of relationship with God and others.

Scriptures:       Genesis 12:1-4 God calls Abram to leave behind his family and home to a new land that God will show him.

                        John 3:1-17     Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus the Pharisee at night.

Questions:

What do we need to be willing to leave behind in order to move to a healthier place in our faith and relationship with God? What does it mean for us to be “Born from above” and how do we participate with God in our rebirth? In what ways is Nicodemus’ question “how can a person be reborn when they have grown old” describe our own sense of being unable to change? How do we open ourselves to the “water” and the “Spirit” to act in our lives in a new way? What is the difference between being faithful and being transformed by the power of God’s Holy Spirit?

03/01/2020 Communion Sunday, First Sunday of Lent.

Sermon:           Our Problem

Theme:            We are people who are mired in sin and unable to overcome our weakness.

Purpose:          We will understand our need for submission to God.

Scriptures:       Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7            God’s commandment to not eat of the fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil.

                        Matthew 4:1-11          Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness by the devil.

Questions:

What role does temptation and trial play in our process of sorting out our priorities? How is it that we come to examine what we truly believe rather than the things we wish we believed? What is the path we need to walk in order to come to a place where we are able to be authentic in our faith? What causes people to be more focused on their own will and desires rather than on what would truly be fulfilling and joyful?
