WELCOME to WE STUDY TOGETHER! We’re here for two simple reasons. The first is to give you a simple tool to assist you in studying the Bible for yourself week by week. That may be enough for you, but the second purpose is to help make connections. Because of busy schedules and other difficulties, many of us can not attend a group regularly. This study allows you to participate with others by reading their comments and through writing your own when you have an insight that you want to share. You just may find that you like it and that God will meet you in significant ways as you study His Word.
The theme for our Summer Study will be - ”Be Strong and Very Courageous” – a 9 week study of the life and book of Joshua. Where do you turn when you are feeling overwhelmed, inadequate, or anxious? You’ll find amazing and practical answers to that question as you consider what God did for Joshua as He led the Israelites into the Promised Land. It’s a Bible study that will encourage your faith and strengthen you on your journey.
The lessons are available on the “Current Study” page so that you can use them on line or print out the whole series. Each lesson is just 1 binder sheet of paper. You are welcome to begin the study at any time in the series and go at your own pace if you need to do so. The introductions for each lesson will be posted each Friday starting June 14.
There is nothing that can compare to your own discoveries as the Holy Spirit teachesyou directly from The Word of God. The insights, applications, and background information which books, sermons, and daily devotionals give us are helpful and inspirational, but the Bible was written so that you personally could discover who God is and why Jesus came to show His love to you and to me. What you will find out as you spend time considering the truth presented in Scripture is that the Holy Spirit will “open the eyes” of your mind and heart and will enable you to see for yourself what He wants you to understand and to integrate in to your life. It will be an exciting and challenging journey for you. Taking it with others will broaden your experience in surprising ways!
You will want to meet the four people who have come together to make this opportunity happen. Kim is the Director of Women’s Ministry at Twin Lakes Church in Aptos, California. Marilyn has written the studies and will be writing the introduction to the lesson week by week. Kevin is the IT mastermind at TLC and a very key person when it comes to the technical side of this website/blog. Gina is the one who will make sure that all of the details are managed and will be there for the rest of us whenever we need her. (For more information go to TLC.org or Women-in-the-Word.com websites.)
We are looking forward to meeting you through your comments, insights and questions as you share them with us. Simply read the introduction for that week’s lesson by clicking on that “post” on the westudytogether “current study” page or by subscribing to have them mailed directly to your e-mail address each Friday. When God touches your heart in some way or you make a discovery that will encourage others, simply type in your comment or reply to the comment that someone else has made.
