A Study in Genesis
WHAT: Spiritual formation is important as it helps us understand our spiritual roots. There can be no place better than the book of beginnings, Genesis. This study will focus on Abraham, and then followed by Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. These patriarchs help us understand what faith is (and is not) as we watch them struggle with loving and following God and grow from spiritual infants into those possessing adult faith.
Not only will we be watching the formation of their faith, but we will, along the way, learn much about interpersonal relationships: husbands and wives, sibling, employer/employee—as well slaves to owners back then. We’ll also learn about how to view those in our community. We will chart the father of faith’s own faith to see how this giant of the Bible (Abraham) is like us. We will discuss what we can learn from him and the other patriarchs to see how their faith walks apply to our own lives in 2020.
