The only wrong way to interpret the Bible, wrote Saint Augustine, is to interpret it in a way that does not make you more loving. At Hillside Community Church, we believe that Augustine was on to something really good.

Each week, we draw on the deepest insights of scripture to better understand how we might ground our lives in the transforming love of God. Our messages are fresh, relevant, and delivered with trademark good humor.

Rev. Tom Hathaway - August 1, 2021

How (Not) to Read the Bible

Most us take a roulette approach to Bible reading - we flip it open and leave it to chance that we'll land on something inspiring. In this sermon on 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Rev. Tom Hathaway debunks two common myths that make us think this roulette approach is a good one, then suggests a better way forward. HINT: It involves reading the Bible regularly, in community, and with a clear sense of its purpose in the life of faith.

Scripture References: 2 Timothy 3:14-17
