Our Bible meetings have started on the Web since September 10 and are going well.
Here is the link that takes you to the video on YOUTUBE; it is a summary that I make of the meeting which is, it goes without saying, much more animated since the participants bring a lot of themselves and their discoveries to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yUHc0CqFWY
The Book of Jonah is both astonishing and enigmatic. It prompts us to seek a teaching for our existence beyond the fact that the lesson survived (or not) in the belly of the fish. How does this apply to me? What is the belly that constantly swallows me and perhaps prevents me from fulfilling the way of God in my life? Maybe I need the womb of God to feel "gratified with His mercy"?
These are very enriching meetings. On September 16, we had the pleasure of welcoming to our set Mr. Haim Ouizemann, a specialist in Biblical Hebrew and the Hebrew tradition. He lives in Ashkelon, Israel, with his wife Miriam. I had the pleasure of co-hosting the meeting on Jonas with Haim on the Web. It was a very special experience to function with him in Israel and me in Quebec. The participants were delighted with this meeting and are asking to have him back. Haim is always welcome to our set; we are aware however of his busy schedule.
If you understand French, it is still time to join us if, in your heart, you would like to be part of these meetings. You could simply contact me at this e-mail address. email@example.com
