For many of us, it's difficult enough to be in our Bibles, reading daily. So it's not a stretch to guess that most of our faith-family doesn't quickly turn to the Minor Prophets for Bible study and reading. (Some of you might even be asking, "Minor Prophets, who are they?") Therefore, we are going to spend the next 12 weeks journeying through the Minor Prophets.
Each week we'll look at one of the prophets and the message he carried from God. The message is the focus, which means when we look at Jonah, we'll spend more time looking at what he went to Ninevah to preach rather than his journey in the belly of a fish or his poor attitude service God. Those things are great, but there's also a lot to learn from the Message of the Twelve.
We'll be going through them in chronological order rather than the order they are listed in your Bible (which has more to do with the length of the writing). I'd like to encourage you to take the week ahead of the sermon and read the book. Or, if you'll find it more helpful, set yourself to read the book after each corresponding Sunday.
Here's the order:
Come join us on Sunday mornings at 11 am for a journey through, "The Message of the Twelve."
For the Kingdom!
