Kaleidoscope Look-Ahead Study with Pastor Paul
Tuesdays at 6:30pm | Via Zoom
Our worship/preaching series in October/November was based on the work Holy Currencies by The Rev Dr. Eric Law. In the chapter “Currency of Gracious Leadership” Law discusses the importance of a tool called mutual invitation, especially in groups that include diverse cultural backgrounds. He uses another tool to demonstrate how we might use mutual invitation – in what he calls Kaleidoscope Bible Study. For those of you who have experienced lectio divina, it will feel quite familiar. Kaleidoscope Bible Study seeks to immerse us in scripture for formation as well as information. Each person’s experience of the text is important. In mutual invitation, each person has the opportunity to reflect equally if they wish. I have used this approach to Bible study throughout my ministry and it has yielded rich formation. I will share some of the things I have been learning about the texts we intend to use on the coming Sunday, but not before each person has had an opportunity to briefly share an idea, image or phrase that stayed with them – perhaps a new whisper in a familiar passage – or something that causes wonder or resistance. No advance study is required, though I will share the texts we will read, typically the morning of each session. We will take turns reading the texts aloud and responding. It works best in groups of not more than twelve, so I will ask participants to sign up each week. If we get more than twelve regular participants, I will find another time in the weekly schedule to hold another session.
Reverb Bible Study with Pastor Danielle
Mondays at 6:30 | via Zoom
|Timeless Bible stories are more than just stories we read about. They also speak to each one of us in an intimate way that reverberates through our minds and hearts. These reverberations ripple through our world, echoing universal truths and prophetic voices to communities all over the world. However, there is also a particular resonance felt by every individual one of us which we listen to as a unique experience. So how do you express your experience of hearing the story of Ruth, or Jonah, or Samuel? How have their stories resonated with you in the past, and is it any different today? What is your story?|
