Knowing God – The Study of God

May 5 2019
Speaker: Ian Campbell
Proverbs 1:1-7
For many of us formal education consisted of classes, exams and required reading. We put aside reading for leisure in favour of the hundreds of pages that needed to be mastered in keeping with the calendar. We avoided our interest being captured by subjects and topics of interest that were calling to us like Odysseus’ sirens because they would detract us from staying on course towards the completion of a diploma or degree or certification. But when the program was completed we were free to engage as we chose in matters of more interest! So a class taken for audit for pleasure was a treat. If you could choose a subject for study that was for personal profit and enjoyment – would you think of studying God? What would that be like? What would it yield? That’s what’s on offer for us in this study.
