An Eastertide Journey of Scripture and Prayer...
In this new small group study for Eastertide, our small groups are continuing their focus on the prayerful study of Scripture, lectio divina, that we used in our Lenten series. We're drawing from the Sunday readings during Easter, most especially concentrating on the Acts passages. The Acts passages are different in style from the Psalms and Isaiah passages in the Lenten study, and so using lectio divina when studying a historical book of Scripture will be a different experience. It will stretch and grow us in our study and in listening to God’s voice, and learning how He desires to form us further into the image of Jesus.
And here's something more: It will also draw our attention to the ancient church, to the ways her members related to each other and the world around them. Having heard Jesus’ answers when they asked, “Tell us plainly,” they then went about their lives in the understanding that “we are witnesses to these things” (John 10:24; Acts 5:32, 10:39). That is our Eastertide journey.
The launch date is just around the corner (and will be slightly different for each of our four group offerings). Need a small group to jump into? Just send us a note and we'll be glad to help!
