Francois Du Toit’s Greek paraphrased translation; The Mirror Bible study Wednesday night!

We so look forward to seeing everyone tonight.  I changed a few things on the Zoom meeting to hopefully make it easier to figure out your time in your particular time zone.
Always remember that every week is recorded so if the time does not work for you or you have a prior commitment you can always follow along with the recording the next day.
Please always feel free to e-mail us with questions and or comments.  Patrick will read and comment on the chapter for about 30 minutes and then we will do breakout participation
rooms where you will be in a small zoom chat room with 4-5 other participants.  When in these room please use the time to discuss the Chapter we are studying.  The study
questions can be your guide.  Also please take turns speaking in your small group so everyone is included in the discussion.  In this study you will need a MirrorWord Bible which
can be downloaded on app onto your phone, ordered on Amazon as a paperback book or onto a kindle app.  Every Thursday I will send out the new study questions and the Zoom link to watch the recording.

Patrick Emery is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
