Research suggests that over the past five years, one of the most essential Christian faith practices has fallen to the wayside. Reading our Bibles has become rare for most Christians, rather than a distinguishing mark of our faith community. Because of that, many of us find the stories and language in the Bible confusing, which makes us less likely to try again. Meditating on Scripture Together is an opportunity for us to learn to read the Bible together. It is not a typical Bible Study where someone delivers a lecture on a chapter of Scripture. Instead, we will read a passage of Scripture together, take a few moments to write down any words, phrases, or questions that stood out to us, and then we'll talk together, learning from each other.
If you have found it challenging to read Scripture, or have lost the practice altogether, take the opportunity to come and fall in love with God's written word so that He may form you into the image of His Son through it.
