Transforming Relationships - Bible Study Series for 2022

Transforming Relationships - Bible Study Series for 2022


# Bible Blog
Published by Sera Rumble on Wednesday, 5 January 2022 11:52

‘Relationships are entwined, entrenched, elusive, messy, enabling, enrapturing, maddening, exhilarating, frustrating, exposing, and too beautiful for words.’*

A lot of life is shaped by the relationships we have, whether they are through work, family, friendship, companionship or circumstances just bringing us together. It is in the midst of these relationships that we encounter ourselves and others in the fullness of our mess, awkwardness, joys and sorrows. And it also where we encounter God, who reveals himself again and again as a relational God. This series therefore invites us to encounter God through exploring a variety of relationships in the Bible, journeying the breadth of God Big Story as we travel from Eden to Eternity.
