Bible Study Explores God’s New Thing


Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old.  I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?  — Isaiah 43:18-19

"_bokehOcean"Explore God’s promise of hope and renewal expressed by the Prophet Isaiah in a bible study based on Bishop Burkat’s presentation at last fall’s “God Is Doing Something New” conference events. This bible study, suitable for council retreats, small groups or ongoing bible study groups, will help you look at what central traditions need to be honored in your congregation as well as what “former things” might be clouding the view of what God is doing right now. This study will help your group look afresh at God’s mission in your place of ministry and focus on the treasures you have for mission, the gifts you can share to help others, and the hindrances you might need to remove in order to move forward.

Our challenge is to use the present to build on the past to help bring about God’s future.
