2019-2020 Horizons Bible Study

Love Carved in Stone: A Fresh Look at the Ten Commandments

By Eugenia Anne Gamble

What would it mean to consider the Ten Commandments not as a harsh list of what not to do but, instead, as a “love letter” from a loving God? A fresh embrace of the Ten Commandments (or Words), author Eugenia Gamble suggests, may ultimately contribute to the restoration of ourselves and our communities and the furthering of the gospel in the world. “Moral behavior matters, not simply because immoral actions can anger or disappoint God, but because principled behavior is how love becomes real, both toward God and in community.” Love Carved in Stone is a Bible study that helps us reframe the way we look at and live in the world.

 

The Horizons Bible Study is used by Circles 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Circle 1 is discussing the book Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again
by Rachel Held Evans.

For additional information, please contact a Circle Leader, PW Moderator Catherine DeMaere, or Membership Coordinator, Tracy Woody. Thank you!

The designated Circle should provide two helpers to assist in the kitchen from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM and should provide 10 long loaves of sandwiches cut in half, placed back in the original bread wrapper, and labeled as to contents. Do not wrap individual sandwiches. If needed, call on other circles for either sandwich makers or kitchen helpers.

 

FELLOWSHIP OF THE LEAST COIN (Donation collected at each circle meeting)

This is a worldwide ecumenical movement of prayer for peace and reconciliation conducted by United Church Women. PW circles support this on an individual basis. Our yearly collection is sent to our PW Presbytery Treasurer and then to the national office for worldwide grants.

The prayer: O Loving Creator, we present ourselves in your divine presence to thank you for all the bountiful gifts of life. We are especially grateful for the Fellowship of the Least Coin which binds us together in love and forgiveness around the globe. Free us from all doubts and prejudices, we pray. Inspire us to live in solidarity with humankind that we may know the joy of giving and receiving. Dear God, accept this least coin “token of love.” Make us mindful of the miracles of these coins. Let us honor your creation with love as shown through the life and resurrection of your son, Jesus the Christ, Amen.
