Welcome to St Peter's, Heversham

Wednesday study group

Patriarchs and Promises

Genesis 12–50

Wednesdays, 10.30 am–12.00 noon at St Thomas'.

For link, contact Bryan or Ellie.

Abraham and his family ‘did not receive the things [God] promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth’ ~ so we are told in Hebrews 11.

  • What were these outstanding promises?
  • How do they dovetail into the life of Jesus, and therefore become our promises?
  • How do we live as people trusting God’s promises today?

The stories of the patriarchs ~ the founding fathers of our faith ~ have much to teach us about patient hope in God, and about how to live distinctly for God, even with foibles and failures.
