Adult Forums for November:
November 29: Book of Isaiah presented by Dave Olson (Part 3 of 5). Look at the theme of peace in Isaiah's writings; study 11:1-9 the familiar “stump of Jesse” text.
Adult Forums for December:
December 6: Book of Isaiah presented by Dave Olson (session 4 of 6). In this session we will explore Second Isaiah's message to the exiles in Babylon. In Judah's darkest hours of doubt and despair in a foreign land, a new prophet bursts on the scene to give his people reason for hope. We will explore the familiar words of comfort in Chapter 40 and other passages that ground this hope in the trustworthiness of God's word for the exiles and for us in our times of doubt today. You are welcome to come even if you missed previous sessions in the series.
