    Through Spring 2018 (Jan 14-May 27) St. George's Church will have a parish-wide immersion in the Gospel of John!  It will seep into everything we do as a community, not just our Bible studies.  Read on for our reduced cost commentaries, our visiting scholars and preachers, and our visiting art exhibit during the month of April!  There is no way you can get behind -- it is self-paced and flexible, but John will be everywhere.  We've got suggested reading schedules below too.

     

    Sign Up in the Welcome Lounge for your two-volume copy of Bishop Tom Wright's John for Everyone (available at a reduced cost).  Sign-Ups through Dec 24 -- but you can certainly purchase on Amazon too.  See the bottom of this page for a gentle, suggested reading schedule (but again, this is just a suggestion, read at your own pace).
