2020 Topic:

“O how love I thy law!” (Ps. 119:97)

How can we experience spiritual freedom and healing as defined in the Bible, the Word of God? Join us next fall for a study of the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and other biblical texts as we explore how loving obedience to God’s law leads to ultimate freedom from sin, disease, even death.

Our sessions will explore:

  • Moses’s experience at the burning bush and his confrontation with Pharaoh
  • The challenges that the children of Israel faced in the wilderness and in the promised land
  • The Ten Commandments and Jesus’ inspiring Sermon on the Mount, along with Mary Baker Eddy’s statements regarding their importance
  • The Apostle Paul’s statements about freedom
