Vera Lee | verajlee@gmail.com | 610.563.7876
We are a kinship group located in South Jersey and we couldn’t be more excited to have a BRV presence in the Garden State. We will meet every other Friday starting on February 7th. We will have a simple dinner together, and we are excited to begin a new book study this term, Twelve Voices for Truth:  A Study of Minor Prophets by Jack Hayford.  Here is the book overview from the publisher:  “For many Christians, the Minor Prophets can seem distant and incomprehensible. Twelve Voices for Truth shows how these ancient prophets still speak to believers today. By exploring each book’s theme in the context of history and revelation, you’ll learn how the prophets speak to you today. Though the books may be minor in length, they are major in the truths they teach, including: the majesty of God, courage and hope, injustice and judgment, trusting and loving God, and many other spiritual precepts.”  For those of you living in South Jersey, we welcome you to join us.
