DWELLING IN THE WORD
Sundays at 4:00pm beginning May 7 | 3rd floor conference room | Sharon Kelso
Dwelling in the Word: Reflection on scripture is a foundational practice all Christians are invited to adopt as a way of discerning God’s voice in their own lives. Please join parishioner Sharon Kelso for a weekly reflection on scripture at 4:00pm on Sunday afternoons. The scriptures will be those read aloud in our church services earlier that morning. The practice is simple: the group will select one or more of the weekly readings from the Old Testament, the psalms, the epistles and/or the gospels. After reading the passage(s), folks will be asked to share: what catches your attention? What questions does the passage raise for you? What might God be saying to you through the passage? While reading the passages beforehand in a good study Bible may be helpful, it is certainly not necessary to experience this thoughtful exploration of the scriptures of the week and how God may be informing our ministry work in the process.
