EXPERIENCE SCRIPTURE IN AN ANCIENT, NEW WAY:
BOTH COMMUNAL AND PERSONAL, INFURIATING AND CLARIFYING, TEACHING MOVING THROUGH SPACE AND TIME TOWARDS A TARGET.*
Scripture Circles—a regular gathering of community centered around the Word—are an experience of studying the Scriptures that is practical and pastoral, scholarly and mystical, personal and communal. Each Scripture Circle is a remarkable experience of communion with God and others—a unique journey made more so by your participation: no one else has your story, your eyes, and the gifts you bring to the study of Scripture.
As a believer, I have had the surprising and enriching experience of having studied under two gifted rabbis, people of God who gather groups nationally and internationally to explore the Scriptures. These gatherings brought me into an ancient and beautiful way of attending to the story of God in the Scriptures that I and our other teachers are excited to share. We believe this form of study can revolutionize your life and faith—because of the way it has revolutionized ours. We look forward to journeying together in the Scriptures in sacred community with you, guided by the Holy Spirit, grounded in God.
Grace & peace,
P.S. Looking for something local to you? If you’re in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, we highly recommend 40 Orchards and their study communities. In North Dakota? Check out the Red River Scripture Circles folks.
*The word Torah (תּוֹרָה) might best be translated as “teaching moving through time and space towards a target. In Scripture Circles we explore why “the first five books of the Bible” or “the teachings of Moses” might not be as helpful a translation of the word torah as a more verb-based understanding.
