Confirmation Makeup Assignment for February 16th or 18th

Tonight we explored the books of the Bible

You should know most of the Bible is a story-we don't mean a story like a fairy tale, or a story like a history book. It is a different kind of story. It is a sacred story, intended to help us understand and experience God and that is how we are going to be looking at the Bible - as a sacred story. Now that doesn't mean this is the only valid way to look at the Bible, but I think it will be helpful to us. 

The ancient Israelites and early Christians who gave us the stories in the Bible weren't trying to report events like modern journalists or historians. Instead, they were telling stories of the experiences and what they believed about God's activity in the world. Many of the stories they told were passed down to them generation after generation. 

So we will look at the Bible as a sacred story-a story that combines literal and poetic descriptions of reality to reveal deep truths about God and us.  Taken from Echo the Story Leader Guide - St. Mary's Press
