The Book of Exodus, 7pm Weds eves, Jan 5 - April 6.
The Episcopal Church's Good Book Club, and your St. A's clergy, are reading the Book of Exodus during Epiphany and Lent 2022. Exodus recounts the journey of the Israelites from slavery to freedom and features the great stories of Moses - from his discovery by Pharoah's daughter, to the burning bush, the plagues, the crossing of the Red Sea and the Ten Commandments. Along the way, we encounter God’s covenant and explore the grand theme of redemption.
Follow along with the Good Book Club's daily reading schedule, typically a handful of verses or a short chapter.
Join Rev. Nate and Rev. Katie on Zoom Wednesday evenings, 7pm- 8pm, starting on January 5, to discuss the chapters and themes for that week. Everyone is welcome to drop in to any session, regardless of whether you have been able to keep up with all the reading or attend earlier classes.
