Scripture Study at the Benedictine Peace Center
Seeking Wisdom? Find it in the Bible
We want to be knowledgeable about the world around us and to keep up with the latest in our professions. When seeking wisdom about life, we can find it in the Bible, a source that has guided people for thousands of years. When combined with prayer, the Bible not only gives us answers, but the strength to live out its wisdom. Consider Scripture study at the Benedictine Peace Center as a way to “wise up.”
We will soon be concluding our 2018 Lenten Scripture studies. Scroll down below the picture for information about the topics for the morning and evening groups and stay tuned for information about fall offerings. We use the popular Little Rock Scripture Study materials. They are geared for YOU if you think of yourself as an “average person” who wants to deepen your knowledge of God through the Bible, but doesn’t want to get too academic. You will
- Spend 20 minutes a day reflecting on scripture, using a study guide and text
- Be guided by the study questions which invite you to apply the Scriptures to your life today, as well as help you delve more deeply into the text
- Share your responses with others at the weekly group session at the Benedictine Peace Center
- Listen to a brief live or video talk providing additional teaching about the Scriptures you just discussed
- Let the sharing of the Scriptures lead you to shared prayer
2018 Lenten Scripture Study Sessions
The Women of the New Testament
In this study of New Testament, we see how women with a variety of connections to Jesus and the apostles encounter their strengths and needs, and how they reacted to the challenges they faced in responding to Jesus. Through the lives of women who lived in the first century of Christianity, participants in this in-depth 8- week study will experience what it means to be touched by Jesus and the meaning of discipleship. These sessions will be led by S. Doris Oberembt on Wednesday from 10:00 – 11:45, beginning on Feb. 7. To register or for further information contact Sr. Doris at 668-6022 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration due by Feb. 1.
The Book of Job
The Wednesday evening series for Lent 2018 will be facilitated by S. Mary Jo Polak, meeting 7:00-8:30 for 6 weeks, with an introductory session on February 7. Lent is a good time to come to grips with the pain and disappointment in our own lives and in the world around us. Job, a righteous person, is beset with tragedy, yet continues to pray and wait on God. His story gives us an opportunity to reflect on the perennial problem of evil with wisdom from our faith tradition. Join our Wednesday evening community for this journey of faith! For more information, e-mail S. Mary Jo Polak or call 605-668-6021. Please register by Feb. 1.
