Here’s the buzz from Believe small groups week one:
One of the Monday afternoon group members deserves “extra credit” for bringing in additional information about week one’s reading from Acts 17:16-34, concerning Paul’s message “To an unknown God” proclaimed in Athens at the Areopagus. I didn’t read it until after class, but the Areopagus was the location of the highest court in Greece for civil, criminal and religious matters. It’s not far from the Acropolis and the ruins of Athens’ market. Chuck has seen it in person. The Roman name for this site is “Mars Hill”, also the name of a college in North Carolina.
Our first BELIEVE study went very well! We have an enthusiastic group with great participation! Discussions about hula hoops and the Holy Trinity, were very intriguing. Looking forward to this weeks study of a Personal God!
This past week, we shared how we know God and how God exists in the Trinity.
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.” Acts 24-25
And then this song and video shared by a group member that summed up God to her. Enjoy!
