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 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.
