Joseph, the Dreamer
The first book of the Hebrew Scriptures is essentially a collection of stories. The book opens with the story of creation and ends with a very long story of how the descendants of Abraham ended up living in Egypt. The final 20 chapters of the Book of Genesis consist of a collection of stories about the life of Joseph, Jacob’s beloved youngest son. During the months of May and June the Wednesday Morning Bible Study group will be discussing six of these amazing stories.
You are invited to join the group as it reflects on the meaning of these ancient stories and the implications for our lives in the 21st century. The Bible Study group meets in the parish library every Wednesday morning at 10:30.
