Christian Education at First Presbyterian Church


Advent scripture study with Pastor Murray, Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. December 2, 9, 16, 23

There are many ways to read the Bible and this Advent we are inviting you to join us for a virtual Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina means Sacred Reading, and approaches God’s word with three basic questions: What is the passage saying? What is it saying to me personally? And what does it call me to do?

We will meet by Zoom on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. until around 4:30 p.m. There will be no lectures. We will each “sit with the passage” at the beginning, then discuss what came out of our reading of it. Email fpcm@firstpresmedford.org for the Zoom link.

We will be looking specifically at four Advent passages. The first will be Luke 1:26-38 (The Annunciation, when Mary hears from the angel she will bear a child), Luke 1:46-55 (Mary’s song or the Magnificat), Matthew 1:18-25 (where we get Joseph’s side of the story) and finally Luke 2:8-20.

If there is enough interest for other times, we can change or add a new time. Each session is stand alone, so if you have to miss one, you can join right in for the next one.
