Walking the bible tonight

Tonight we begun another Wednesday night B.S. series at our church. We're going to be looking at the video "Walking The Bible: A Journey By Land Through the Five Books of Moses." This was shown on PBS and is a companion to the book by the same name by Bruce Feiler.

I'm not exactly sure how we're going to do it yet, because it's broken up into three 1-hour segments. I'm thinking about just doing like a half hour of video, and another half hour of discussion each night. Or something like that.

The back of the dvd case has this to say:
Both a heart-racing adventure and an uplifting quest, Walking the Bible presents one man's epic journey -- by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel -- through the greatest stories ever told. From crossing the Red Sea to climbing Mount Sinai to touching the burning bush, Bruce Feiler's inspiring odyssey will forever change your view of history's most legendary events.

The stories in the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah, come alive as Feiler searches across three continents for the stories and heroes shared by Christians and Jews. You'll visit the slopes of Mount Ararat, where Noah's ark landed, trek to the desert outpost where Abraham first heard the words of God, and scale the summit where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Dramatic scripture readings interspersed throughout bring you closer to these Biblical settings. A once-in-a-lifetime journey, Walking the Bible offers new insight into the roots of our common faith and uncovers fresh answers to the most profound questions of the human spirit.

Should be innaresting. I hope someone shows up. It's open to anyone and everyone at 7 pm each Wednesday. The coffee will be on.
