Adult Bible Study on Nov. 21

The next session of our study of the books of the Apocrypha will be on Tuesday, November
21. Since we did not get to look at 2 Esdras at our October meeting, we will spend the first half-hour of our time looking at some selections from that book, then move on to Judith.
The story of Judith, like Tobit, purports to be "historical fiction", but is not true history. Probably written after the Maccabean revolution in the 2nd century BCE, it is set in the time of Nebuchadnezzar. Judith is a beautiful, pious, and brave widow who manages to liberate her city from the Babylonian army by killing its general. According to Professor David deSilva, " The book [is] a rich witness to the theology and ethics of the period, as well as the surprising (and disturbing) use of deceit as a laudable means to defeat an enemy." We meet in the downstairs lounge from 7 to 8:30 pm. For more information or if you need a ride, call Elder Kitt Jackson at 518-439-9771.


Getting ready for Advent

Family Advent Night: On Saturday, Dec. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m., come and help decorate the church for the Advent season. We will decorate the sanctuary, fellowship hall and the outside of the church building from 5 to 6 p.m. We will then share in a pot-luck dinner and singing of Advent/Christmas carols. Bring your whole family!
