We ARE Back

The Bible Class at First UU is back in action. We have had 2 weeks of Genesis out of a 5 week course on that book. Will post shortly on what we covered each week.

This class continues to be incredibly popular. We've had 20-25 people the past two weeks with limited advertising. Join us next week. Once we reach critical mass we may have to move into a bigger room, but we're happy to do it.

A few reminders: the Bible of choice for the class is the Harper Collins Study Bible NRSV translation. We will have copies of this for sale again, hopefully this week. For background, I also recommend Understanding the Bible by John Buehrens. We will also have those for sale on Sunday, publisher willing.

We try to begin the class promptly at 9:30AM on Sundays so that we can end on time at 10:30. We have 3 more weeks on Genesis. The plan is to have another class (probably Exodus) in November or so. We'll hit Job in the Spring and maybe go for Mark in the late Spring.
