The Wisdom Books of Hebrew Scripture include Job, Proverbs, Psalms, Song of Songs, Qohelet (Ecclesiastes), and Lamentations. In these books, Israel joined ancient sages in many cultures in the discussion of basic issues of human life—but with a major distinction. For believing Hebrew sages, everything began and centered on the rubric: “The Fear of Yahweh.” These relatively neglected books can become very helpful to modern believers as we face deep issues in our lives.

“Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath” by Priscilla Shirer facilitated by Cindy Demos ($15)—begins 2/21
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
Isaiah: Striving Less and Trusting God More facilitated by Jen Lindsay ($23)—begins 2/7
Isaiah served as God’s mouthpiece to the nation of Judah but also to the surrounding nations. His message echoes into our lives today as we read his call to rely on the Lord. Using the genres of poetry, narrative, and prophecy, Isaiah communicated clearly that followers of God could trust in Him. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote—from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come—learn to rest in God’s promises and grow in trust. Unpacking Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
When it comes to heroes and sheroes, Ruth and Esther are unmatched in the course of history. A queen deposed because she refuses to attend her king/husband’s drunken party, an immigrant girl rising to take her place, a murderous plot against an ethnic minority group, and a twist of fate worthy of a Hollywood thriller---all these (and more) are included in the story of Esther, whose courageous act saves her people from annihilation. As with Ruth, Esther’s story of faith, bravery and hope helps us believe that God is real, He is alive, He protects, and He guides us.

Are you ready?
Baptism is first and foremost about growing in your understanding and relationship with God and His church. More than just a physical act, baptism is the opportunity you have for following after Christ and being His disciple as you walk with others who are growing in their relationship with God.
