On July 9, 16, and 23, the WSBC Ministry with Adults offers two summer Forums during the Sunday School hour, beginning at 9:45 a.m.
In Search of the Disciples: Tendencies and Traits of the Twelve
Leader: Jonathan Sauls – Fellowship Hall
Loyal and disloyal. Courageous and cowardly. Full of faith and given to doubt. The disciples of Jesus represent the span of human personalities, characteristics, and contradictions. Join us in this forum as we discover who the disciples were, what they became, and how they remain relevant to us today. Sessions will include My Disciple Doppelganger, The “B” Team, and Judging Judas.
Transfigurations: Transgressing Gender in the Bible
Leaders: Amy Armstrong and Sarah Jobe, Rm 102
This study is based on a DVD program combining light lecture and dramatic presentation to explore ways in which figures in several bible stories demonstrate gender diversity/transgression of typical gender norms. Included are Deborah, Joseph, a eunuch in Xerxes court in Esther, the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts, and the man with the jug of water who leads Jesus disciples to the upper room. Guided discussion will follow the viewing of each segment.
