UEC Bible Study
Experiencing the Spirit
A Pentecost Experience
Sermon Topic: "Spiritual Energy; Release, Believe, Persevere"
Focus Scripture: Hebrews 11:29-40 & 12:1-2
11:29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as if it were dry land, but when the Egyptians attempted to do so they were drowned.
11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell after they had been encircled for seven days.
11:31 By faith Rahab the prostitute did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had received the spies in peace.
11:32 And what more should I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets--
11:33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions,
11:34 quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.
11:35 Women received their dead by resurrection. Others were tortured, refusing to accept release, in order to obtain a better resurrection.
11:36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment.
11:37 They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented--
11:38 of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground.
11:39 Yet all these, though they were commended for their faith, did not receive what was promised,
11:40 since God had provided something better so that they would not, apart from us, be made perfect.
12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,
12:2 looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.

Have you ever picked up the bible to read the Word of God and found yourself saying, "what does that really mean to me, in my life and the world today"? Are you curious to experience a journey into the reality of the lives of those who lived during ancient biblical times? Are you searching for understanding and the meaning in all of it? Is it your time to dive in for the first time or are you being lead to re-enter the waters of divine revelation? If this sounds like you, you are not alone!
UEC's new bible study is in session! We enter this journey into a study of scripture with an open mind and heart; welcoming all to a seat at the table of our virtual Bible Study. Together, we will engage in the study of scripture, within the context of life then, bringing forth our understanding of what that means to us, in the here and now. We seek to listen for how God was speaking thousands of years ago and learn to hear that very same voice, as it has traveled through evolving and changing times, into our lives and world today.
The Word of God, lives. It is an essence of the Spirit that has taken a journey through the times. We understand that scripture is humanity's discernment of God through the lens of what they understood to be life's constructs, in their time of existence. As the Spirit has evolved humankind, we have changed and so have the ways we have been called to love. Together, we have created changes in our world that continue to draw us toward fighting the good fight, to be more of a reflection of a Christ-like world. One thing hasn't changed; that one thing is God and the way we are called to live. Each step in a more loving direction teaches us that we are being called to walk forward in the movement of the Holy Spirit.
UEC Bible Study invites you to join us each week, where we will journey into the Word of God with a topic related to our focus scriptures. Together, we will study scripture in context and follow our time with an open discussion, ending our sessions in a time of prayer.
Our faith may be thousands of years old, but our thinking is not!
