TWO LAY SERVANT CLASSES BELOW MOVED TO JANUARY 2023

Many Waters District, Lay Servant Ministries (LSM) Advanced Class

Biblical Interpretation: A Roadmap

Taught by Rev. Shannon Keeney (online class)

Your leader for this and the Preaching class (taken individually or together) will be Rev. Shannon D. Keeney. She is the Pastor at Readfield UMC and Chaplain at Kents Hill School. Rev. Shannon has been a UMC Senior Minister for over 11 yrs. and is Vanderbilt Divinity trained under Professor McClure. The man who literally wrote the book on “The Four Codes” style, one of the key modern formats for preaching. Bible Study is her heart’s joy especially when recovering the forgotten fullness of the figures. She plans to bring their and her stories to the course and invites you too as well. These are both INTERACTIVE classes. All who seek to intermingle honestly with the Word are welcome from new believers to “Cradle Christians.”  

The class will be held on Wednesday mornings in January 2023*

*(rescheduled from November) We are tentatively planning on five 2-hour classes, starting January 4. This would include the four Wednesdays in January plus February 8. The exact time during the morning will be determined by the group that signs up. The group also can discuss options like four 2.5 hour classes.

If you’re interested in the class but have questions about the scheduling, please email Anne Carter (aecarter@bu.edu) and we can discuss. As noted in its separate flyer, the Preaching class, also taught by Rev. Shannon Keeney, will be Wednesday evenings in November – you may take one or the other or both!

OUR COURSE GOAL: 

Through these lessons we will think anew about how we read, internalize, process, and share the Good News. PREACHING and BIBLE STUDY are two of our main doorways into personal and communal faith development and we are going to push them wide open with intentionality and passion. Through the various lens of theological and the practical /  personal and corporate / global and local / comical and serious/ other and self /and modern and historical we will adjust our vision. Hope you join us for this exciting religious ride!
