During this time of social distancing, we have started an experiment we call the Northern Illinois Online Bible Study. We all go to the rich online resources of the Yale (Divinity School) Bible Study and then gather every Monday at 7 p.m. for an hour-long Zoom discussion. We currently have about 20 participants, and so we break out into small group discussions for part of our time. 

Because mainline churches are falling way behind in the promotion of group Bible study that is both honest and truly gospel-centered, it is our hope that this online effort may be of use to many congregations, and continue on, or even morph into face-to-face sessions after the pandemic has passed.
