Loaves and Fishes from the Saint John's Bible

How do we understand “illuminating” or “bringing light to” the texts and context of our faith? We invite you to consider this question as we delve into the first handwritten, illuminated Bible of its scale in over 500 years: the St. John’s Bible. The St. John’s Bible (SJB) took an international team of six artists and six calligraphers fifteen years to complete. It is the first comprehensive illuminated manuscript of the NRSV translation of the Bible in recent history. The…

God has always done the unexpected, for example, choosing David rather than his bigger, stronger, older brothers to be king. Over and over, the Bible gives examples of God confounding the expectations of God’s people, which raises some questions, such as, "Why do God’s people never learn? And how is our track record today? How is our track record as Christian men when it comes to hearing what God is saying and following where God is leading?" This retreat will…
