Resources for the Spiritual Journey

Wednesday Mornings 10:30 - 12:00, beginning September 20, 2017

Using a resource entitled Reading Between the Lines, we'll use one text from the Sunday lectionary and examine the story as found in the Bible. Next, we see how the story is happening in the world around us, and then look at how the story is an event in our own lives. We'll end our time together with Noonday Prayer.

"“For both clergy and laity,  Reading Between The Lines is, in my judgment, the single most important resource for engaging and internalizing the lectionary readings for each Sunday of the year. It is of great value for clergy preparing sermons and for adult study groups undertaking a serious and life-changing encounter with the Bible."
