Bible Study Sr.
For the last 10 years a small but dedicated group have started the long journey of getting to know the Word of God. Some of us, myself included, due to circumstances beyond our control, have never opened the Bible. We believed in God and felt the need to know Him better.
We started with the New Testament, familiar territory, and under the guidance of Hayr Soorp Anoushavan Tanielian, every Tuesday evening for an hour or so we read and discussed the Word of God. After finishing the New Testament, we started with the Old Testament, a series of Books written thousand of years before Christ, announcing His coming for all who can hear.
The Old Testament is composed of Books, the first five attributed to Moses. We hardly scratched the surface, but with each encounter we come closer to understand what God through His Son Jesus Christ is offering to those who believe in Him.
After Hayr Soorp left for higher office for a short while Mrs. Alice Alajajian has guided us in our search for understanding. She was way ahead of us, had been in our place and together we read and tried to understand the eternal truth. Unfortunately, due to illness Mrs. Alice, for the time being can no longer led the Bible Study, but God provides in mysterious ways. Just in time Fr. Nareg Terterian has been assigned to St. Sarkis Church. He is a very knowledgeable young priest, patient and calm, who listens to our sometime childish questions, but is able to explain with examples what the Bible is trying to teach.
We meet Tuesdays in the morning at 10:30am and all of us have formed a bond that only the presence of God can explain. I wish our members will increase, and I extend an invitation to all, to come and sample the miracle of getting closer to God!
