Bible & Bell

Home » News » Bible & Bell

At 2pm on Saturday afternoon, March 24th, you are invited to come along to the Good Faith Book Club. We will be discussing Rob Bell's 2017 book, 'What Is The Bible? — How an ancient library of poems, letters and stories can transform the way you think and feel about everything.' And that's just the title!
What will we make of the questions on the back cover such as:

  • Isn't it all myths and fairy tales?
  • What about all that violence?
  • And the contradictions?
  • Isn't it dangerous to take it seriously?
  • Isn't it only for Christians?
  • Is it inspired?
  • Can it help us?
  • Just what is the Bible?
    By the time we all leave by 4pm, we will have shared some responses. A cuppa and a welcome awaits you.

    Rev. Donna Broadbent-Kelly: Wed 23 Sep 5:00am

    Guarding the truth is Donna's topic and the reading is 1 Timothy 4:1-16.1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which...
