Love, grace, and peace, Rev. Dr. Alfie Wines, Ph.D.
I am Hebrew Bible Scholar RevDr Alfie Wines! . . . I fell in love with the Bible in 1978 when I returned to church after a ten-year hiatus. That’s when I started taking my daughter to Sunday School. To my surprise, I loved the Adult Sunday School Class. When the teacher was absent and I got to lead the class, I loved it! How was I to know that my love for the Bible would become a lifetime passion that would lead me not only to Brite Divinity School and ordination, serving the church as a United Methodist Pastor, (one who currently is not-so-retired),but also to an M.Div. and a Ph.D. in Biblical Interpretation. Most recently, I served as the Sabbatical Pastor 2022 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Arlington, TX. Why study with me? I bring a lifetime of personal, ecclesial, and academic study and teaching . . . "I’ve been described as “smart . . . funny. . . positive . . . honest . . . loving . . . nurturing . . . vulnerable . . .[a leader who listens] . . . reveal[s] the Bible so that it makes sense . . .makes it comfortable for us to ask questions [and] make comments.” People who study with me learn to think about the bible holistically.
Yes! Again and again, I've heard people say, "I've been in church all my life, but this is the first time I understand how things fit together.
I understand that because it was when I learned how the pieces fit that I movedfrom not just reading the Bible to studying and appreciating it in an entirelynew way.
Did you know, the Bible is the world's all-time bestseller. Yet, oftentimes, itsits on our shelves gathering dust, mainly because people don't know how to put the pieces together.
Bible Remix is a holistic approach to Bible Study that puts the pieces together, setsyou free and empowers transformation in all areas of your life: Faith, Family,Friends, Fitness, and Finances!!
Yes,Bible Remix will show you how to put the pieces together. It will open yourheart and mind to biblical treasures that will change your life forever!
We’llcover topics such as “How the Bible Came to Be,” “Reading Biblical Narrative,”“Reading Biblical Poetry,” “Different Voices and Different Views in the Bible”and so much more!!! . . . We’ll explore what it means to say, as Cain Hope Felderdid, that the Bible is a "multiethnic multicultural" book with a"universal" message. That's right, we'll delve into "The Whole Story, the Rest of the Story-TheGood, the Bad, and the Ugly" that makes the Bible such a magnificent text!Bible Remix is a year-long 3-part Introduction to the Bible.

I have never had a pastor who delivered the sermon extemporaneously without notesof any kind. Pastor Alfie’s sermons were soinformative and engaging that I took several notes each week. For example, Iwas not familiar with King David finding and seating Jonathan’s sonMephibosheth at his royal table each day. It was a heart-warming story that Ishared with family members and friends. Learning about many of the strong womenin the Bible was music to my ears! Thank you, Pastor Alfie for all that you do to blesseveryone with whom you come in contact. May God continue to bless youabundantly!
As a mother, I know the depth and joy of her love for your daughter, Tajiri. As a daughter, I know your honor and respect for your parents is a treasure. As a friend, your joyful ways and openness are uplifting. As a pastor, your dedication and fervour offershope and spiritual guidance. I found validation as a woman. I was doubting myself, but you filled me with HOPE and STRENGTH that has never left me. Dr. Alfie made a difference in my life.
When Rev. Dr. Alfie Wines was Pastor at Grace UMC Arlington, TX she inspired me with her teaching and preaching. The most important thing I learned from her was to stay focused on my goals and trust God. She was warm with everyone she met. Also, she taught me the importance of telling the whole story, biblically and in our personal lives as well. She helped me understand that as you journey through life you need to connect the pieces and put the whole story of your life together. When all of those things connect, happy and sad, the story of your life makes a beautiful picture. She is a true inspiration to me and I love her very much.
