Wednesday Morning Bible Study Resumes Tomorrow
Dear Friends in Christ,
For those who have been attending Wednesday Bible Study, it will be a joy to welcome you back. For those who are considering starting, we will be so happy to have you join us.
I've been doing some reflecting over our break. I am looking for ways to continue to offer rich content while better managing the preparation time. I have found a study I'd like us to consider. Here's a link...
Luke: The Gospel of Mercy
Among the pros:
This study is just over two years old.
The approach focuses on
Its reviews are excellent.
It has some video content, but the time is not dominated by video.
Approximately 2/3 of the time is devoted to our engagement with the material.
It has both educational content and life-application emphases.
I can order the leader materials, including DVDs, at a $50 discount.
The potential cons:
There is a participant study guide which costs $39.95.
In order to take full advantage of the materials, we would regroup and reboot our study of the Gospel of Luke.
We will not have the materials to preview until next Wednesday.
St. Benedict Press offers a trial of the leader materials, so I have ordered them for us to review next week. This week we will:
Open as always with prayer and intercessions
Review the material from the
Catechism of the Catholic Church
on how to read sacred scripture
Discuss the group's feelings about this proposed study
Eat delicious snacks and drink delicious coffee and tea
using a passage from the Gospel of Luke
Always feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
May grace and peace be with you,
Our Lady of Fatima
