Lenten Bible Study #6: Psalm...Thursday?
Welcome back to to the Lenten Bible Study podcast of Kobe Union Church. We're happy you've decided to join us! Today's study focuses on Psalm 31, and in our podcast this week we are once again blessed by Pastor Akiko Van Antwerpen joining us! We spend our time talking about what the Psalms are, and how they were used in people's lives, before talking a bit about God's steadfast love for us, even when we're sad, grief-stricken, or just generally annoyed with God. Join us for a fun, and occasionally silly, conversation! - If you'd like to join in the discussion, you're welcome to participate in our Google Classroom. Just go to classroom.google.com and use class code sscycws, or send an email to Pastor Don if you're not familiar with Google Classroom. We'd love to have you join us in the conversation!

Lenten Bible Study #3: Where's my mana?
Welcome to our first podcast! Which is actually the third meeting of our Lenten Bible Study series! Because that makes sense! Having had to cancel the in-person meeting of our Lenten Bible Study, we came to realize that this is the best time for us to try having it online, as a podcast. So, welcome to the first of hopefully many podcasts by Kobe Union Church. Today's podcast focuses on Exodus 16:1-8, the story of the Israelites receiving mana from heaven. Join us for an exploration of the text, and some prayerful meditation on the word!
