Vacation Bible School for Adults: July 10-13

Vacation Bible School for Adults is an annual summer event for those who are not able to vacation in Sweden, the Czech Republic, or in Australia—where it is now nice and cool. Rather we invite you to FUMC of Arlington for four nights of Luke. Luke unfolds both the story of Jesus and the early church in his two volumes: The Gospel of Luke/Acts of the Apostles. Of course with a combined fifty-two chapters we will only be able to give an overview. Yet I pledge to allocate time to the detail of Luke’s artistry as one of the literary giants of the Bible.

Soon around FUMC of Arlington you will notice fliers that announce what our prelude meals will be and in which room we will hold the study on July 10, 11, 12, and 13—of 2011. Meals are good ways to share what Acts tells us that the early church did when “Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts” (Acts 2:46). If you wish you might consider eating with others these evenings as part of your homework for the class!!! Young people who have inquisitiveness in learning what this part of the Bible is all about are also most welcome.

All you need to do for the class is read Luke and Acts as a continuous story, bring your Bible, and an appetite to eat and learn. I will try to set these writings of the New Testament in a literary and historical context. Taken together, these four nights may offer some insights on arguably the most enjoyable books in our New Testament.

I look forward to seeing you these evenings ahead and encourage you to invite your neighbors, fellow acquaintances, and the just plain curious. I hope to make these evenings worth our time and learning, remember, keeps us all young!

Sincerely, your friend,

David N. Mosser

PS. The sessions will never go more than ninety minutes—completed by 8:30 sharp and the Rangers do not play any evening that week!
