Fr. Looker Announces Next Wednesday Night Bible Study

February 27th, 2014 by sjl+

The Devil's Playbook AdvertServices this Wednesday night concluded the seven-week teaching series “According to the Scriptures:” the Biblical Basis for Our Worship with a discussion on why Church of the Messiah baptizes children and infants.  Immediately following that teaching, Fr. Looker announced the topic of the upcoming Bible Study that will run throughout the season of Lent.  The next Bible Study series will be called “A Peek Inside the Devil’s Playbook: A Lenten Bible Study Based on The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis.”

During the height of World War II, legendary Christian writer C. S. Lewis penned weekly correspondences from the elder demon Screwtape to his nephew, the novice tempter Wormwood.  These letters were collected and published in 1942 as The Screwtape Letters and have been regarded as a classic of Christian spirituality ever since.  The letters provide keen insight into how our enemy works to tempt and seduce us from our walk with the Lord and what we need to do in order to prevent such tricks from working.  Having a copy of the book is not essential for participation in the Bible Study, although it will obviously help.

A Peek Inside the Devil’s Playbook: A Lenten Bible Study Based on The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis.” will be a part of Church of the Messiah’s regular Wednesday night services throughout Lent.  This Bible Study will begin March 12th and continue uninterrupted until April 9th.  Each Wednesday night service begins with a time of praise & worship, includes the time of Bible Study, and concludes with a time of intercessory prayer.  Childcare is provided and we always dismiss prior to 8:30 so that everyone can be home in order to get ready for work and school the following day.  For more information, contact Fr. Looker or call the parish office at 904-721-4199.
