Next Sunday we're going to start a series on the Old Testament, the bit of the Bible written before Jesus was around. We'll be working our way through the story of the Old Testament, as well as looking at some of the fascinating characters who make up the story.
People sometimes think of the Old Testament as being boring or irrelevant. I couldn't disagree more strongly. The thread running through it all God's love and passion for mankind is breathtaking, culminating of course in Jesus ending up on planet Earth. You see humanity at its best and its worst, and learn so much about how to do life well with God.
We're going to start at the beginning, with Genesis 1 and 2, so if you want do some advance reading why not read those two chapters before Sunday.
