Scripture+Shared Fall Study
Advice Columnists: The Letters of James and Peter
Week of September 23 – Week of November 11
Dear James and Peter:
I’m trying to figure out the best way to live as a Christian.
- Is it more about faith or works?
- What do I do when I go through tough times?
- How should I spend my money?
- Does it really matter if I say bad words?
- How do I sustain hope in the face of adversity?
Just as we turn to advice columnists to figure out how to navigate tricky social situations, family drama, and work relationships, Christians have been turning to the epistles from James and Peter for 2,000 years for practical advice on how to live as a Christian. This fall, we’ll dive in to these letters in our church-wide Scripture+Shared study. The eight-week study will be available through the Scripture+Shared app and on the St. Luke’s website and include a weekly video lesson and accompanying discussion questions and daily Bible readings and reflections. Grab a friend or family member to be your Bible Buddy or join a LIFT group to study together.
WHAT IS SCRIPTURE + SHARED?
- St. Luke’s church-wide Bible Study ministry
- Studies are launched in the fall and spring each year and generally meet for 8-10 weeks
- Materials are written by Dr. Tom Pace in concert with other pastors and staff of St. Luke’s
- Scripture + Shared is also the name of the App that participants will use to access the materials (materials will also be available for download on the St. Luke’s website)
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
- Study with your current Living in Faith Together (LIFT) group or Sunday School class
- Sign up for a new LIFT group
- If your life is too crazy right now to commit to a specific day and time for a LIFT group, invite a friend or coworker to be your “Bible Buddy” and use the materials to study and exchange thoughts and ideas at a time that is mutually convenient.
- Download St. Luke’s Scripture+Shared App for Bible studies and daily readings wherever you go. Search “Scripture + Shared” (with quotation marks) in your app store, or visit Subsplash.com/ScriptureShared/App in your mobile browser for a direct download link.
