Forum: How was the Bible Written? – Dec. 10th

Back by Popular Demand! Pastor Salying will offer a forum on how the Bible was written and a history of its formation. For those who attended the one in September, a wealth of information was presented.

In the season of Advent, we are encouraged to study and contemplate the Holy Scriptures. With that focus in mind, Pastor Salying will offer the forum again – so please join her in the library for an encore presentation after either of the morning services, on Sunday, December 10th.

Sandwich fixings will be available- food for the body and spirit!

Lectio Divina for Lent: Feb 9, 23 & Mar 8

WHAT IS LECTIO DIVINA?

Lectio Divina for Lent: Lectio Divina is a “divine reading” of scripture, and is my favorite modality of prayer. It does not look treat scripture as a study text as much as the Living Word–as God speaking to the reader in an immediate and intimate way.

In the invitation to holiness in our Ash Wednesday service, we are invited to read the scriptures as a part of the discipline of Lent. I invite you to join me on these Tuesday for lectio divina: Feb. 9, 23, and Mar. 8, at 1:30pm in the Library.

If you wish to learn more about Lectio Divina – read on… ~ Pastor Salying
