It’s customary to do some reflection on our lives as we come to the end of one year and the beginning of another.  Some make resolutions … whether they’re kept for a week or a lifetime.  It’s also time to think about our spiritual well-being as we head into a new year.  If you’ve been with us for APC The Story since September, it’s time to get back into the groove of reading, reflecting and participating in discussion.  Perhaps a New Year’s resolution could be to comment and/or post on the blog more often.  If you haven’t been reading along … now is a good time to join in weekly reading of The Story.

We will be returning with Chapter 13: The King Who Had It All.  There are a number of ways to participate in the community both online and in real life :-).  Pick and choose which work best in your reading and study and interaction with others.  First, read chapter 13 before Sunday, January 5.  Then …

  • attend the Sunday School Class at Allentown Presbyterian Church at 9:30 am
  • attend worship at 8:30 or 11:00 am and hear a sermon related to the chapter (sermons will be also be posted on this blog as available)
  • attend an evening discussion group on Monday at 7:00 pm at the church
  • read the blog posts here beginning on Monday mornings
  • comment on the posts or pose your own questions about the chapter
  • join the discussion on Facebook’s group APC The Story here
