The Rev. Graeme Muckart is planning to offer a short series of meetings under the above heading, to start at the beginning of February. We would look together at such topics as “What is the Bible?”, “How did the Bible come to us?” “What is included and what isn’t? – and how was that decided?” etc., and whatever else you might have wondered about which emerges from discussion we share in.
This is open to everyone. It would help with planning to decide when and where to meet, if anyone interested would let Graeme know by Sunday 22nd. January.
