Peace, Panic and Pandemic: Advent Bible Study Group 2020

Starting Wednesday 2nd December, 9th December, 16th December, 23rd December at 7pm
On Zoom (details to follow)

When the angels came down at the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, their message was "Peace on earth and goodwill all human beings" (Luke 2:14). In the context of the global pandemic sweeping over the world today creating lots of panic, fear, anxiety and loss, what does this message of Christmas, the message of peace mean for us today? This message "peace on earth" offers a message of hope, particularly to cope with this pandemic by God in Jesus' becoming a human being, for he is willing to collaborate and work with us in our context.

Over the period of these four weeks, we will explore the meaning and message of peace in the age of panic and pandemic by engaging in four Biblical passages.

Week one: The vision of peaceful kingdom — Isaiah 11
Week two: The vision of a just kingdom — Amos 8
Week three: The vision of an anti-empire kingdom — Kingdom of God
Week four: The vision of a kingdom of hope — Revelation 21
