LINC'd Through The Bible
LINC completed our free seminar series for 2016 on Saturday, October 15th with a refresher from last year. "Revamped: Equipped to Read, Study, and Understand the Bible" was led again by Laura Sanders. Fifty-one people from across San Antonio and Boerne gathered at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church for five hours to learn together. It was an opportunity to understand the Old Testament history and the different books. We can sit in Bible classes for 10 years and still not understand how it all fits together. Laura did that in 5 hours as a crash course overview of the Bible. In that time, we also inductively studied the word "covenant" step by step from Jeremiah 31:31-34, cross-referencing it to Old and New Testament verses. A participant said afterwards they didn't know they could learn so much from cross referencing the single word "covenant". We no longer are confused by the references to the Northern and Southern Kingdom, Israel and Judah. Another participant said they realized how maps can help them study as we went through Acts 13-15. The team analyzed Law and Gospel for various verses. LINC provided everyone with a binder of study material including charts and timelines to use while reading the Bible. It was a jam-packed time with the Bible, and everyone agreed it was well worth it. LINC is pleased to announce we can bring this same seminar to your church for your members, as an outreach to your community, and for your confirmation retreats. Contact Pastor Ely Prieto for more information on how to make this happen. Plans are underway for the 2017 seminar series. We would love to hear from you if you have a topic and/or speaker to recommend!
