Speaking of the Bible, St. Augustine once said: “My God, the wondrous depth! It causes a shudder to peer into it—a shudder of awe, and a tremor of love.” In 2009, Myers Park shared a Year Through The Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, the life of our congregation helped us look deeper at the words of Scripture—enabling us to come to know them and love them.
The Bible is, of course, more than one single book. It’s actually like a library—with sixty-six books ranging from law and history to poetry and prophecy, Gospels and letters. Our year together was divided into segments as we engaged each section with exciting events, study groups, and learning opportunities. Details: Rev. George Ragsdale at 704-295-4840 or email@example.com.
You can listen to sermons and Weekly Bible Studies from the year. (These links direct you to January's sermons and studies. Additional months can be selected from the navigation bar on the right side of the page).

A Prayer for Reading Scripture
Lord, inspire us to read your Scriptures and meditate upon them day and night. We beg you to give us real understanding of what we need, that we in turn may put its precepts into practice. Yet we know that understanding and good intentions are worthless, unless rooted in your graceful love. So we ask that the words of Scriptures may also be not just signs on a page, but channels of grace into our hearts. Amen.
Origen c. 185-254
