In order to understand ourselves as a people of God, we need to look back over the centuries to all that lies behind us. And this, of course, is where the Old Testament fits in so beautifully into the scheme of things, for the Old Testament is to the church a place of remembrance, a repository of history and tradition. It can be thought of as a family scrapbook in which pictures and memorabilia of the past are preserved. The Old Testament is the place where we get in touch with our religious root system, and this is as important to our faith as family stories are to a particular family heritage. My highest hope is that this study can help us, REMEMBER WHO WE ARE as a spiritual family.
We’ll be using the DOCC Model: a presentation by Fr. Earl, followed by an hour of discussion in small groups known as “Zoom Rooms."
Each evening will end with Compline.
