First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa

    The Story

    Love God and love your neighbor. Jesus made it sound simple, but we know it’s not. So each day we learn what this means through celebrations, how we choose to grow, express care, and serve our community and beyond. The story of our church is a story of ever-deepening relationships.

    Reading the Bible with Understanding

    One of the outcomes of the Protestant Reformation was that everyone (not clergy exclusively) could read and interpret the Bible for themselves. Yet, with this change came the question, is our interpretation accurate? The Bible as a book is not easy to read or understand. There are important things to consider when reading it; such as: what type of literature is this writing; what is the historical setting of the writing; and what was the author’s intent and how do we apply it to our lives today? These are the types of questions addressed in the 9-week class, How to Read the Bible with Understanding taught by Kent Webber, starting Sunday, January 12—10:30 AM and Tuesday, January 14—4:45 PM, both in Room 113.
