St John's Keynsham Invites Us To Walk Thru The Old Testament This Saturday
St John's Church in Keynsham is holding an interactive day seminar this Saturday (24 March) on the Old Testament. 'Walk Thru the Old Testament' is being held for old and new Christians, to help them gain 'a big picture overview of the whole of the Old Testament' says Caroline Canfield-M'Caw of St John's. "People will leave with a manual to remind them of all they have learnt (and free entry for life to future seminars." The event is being held in conjunction with the Walk Thru The Bible charity.

Attendee's can expect to be led through the Old Testament in an enlivened and imaginative way, with the characters brought to life by a member of the Walk Thru charity says Caroline.
"Many people, even those who have been Christians for years, can feel uncertain about the characters, events and places of the Old Testament and struggle to see how it all fits together.
"Through this interactive but relaxed presentation the instructor will walk you through¹ the whole Old Testament, using tools to help you to learn the complete story, grasp the time line of the events and see how the main characters and books of the Bible are placed within it."
Attendees will leave with:
- A big picture overview of the whole of the Old testament
- An understanding of the context into which these events fit into world history
- A greater understanding of the geography and travels that take place And
- A rekindled desire to read the Bible and pray every day
" Most Christians would agree that the Bible is foundational to our faith and key to our spiritual journey with God.
"We know its important, we know God can speak powerfully to us through it, but even those who have being in Christian circles for many years can find it hard at times to get to grips with, to understand the context, so see how the different stories and other bits fit together and can feel a bit foggy about where on earth the different places are. So much so that we can get discouraged and even lose heart. This day will provide the background to deepen understanding, help put passages in context mad equip individuals go even deeper into Gods word and apply it to their lives." said Caroline.
Having personally benefitted from Walk Thru's materials, Caroline encourages anyone interested in Christianity to attend the event.
"Having benefited so much my self from both a Walk thru the Old Testament day and a Walk Thru the New Testament day, I was keen to give others an opportunity to have the benefit of such an enjoyable informative and inspiring event."
