at the Benedictine Peace Center

Wednesday Morning Scripture Study

The Book of Exodus, Part 2

Wednesday Mornings, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Central Time
Beginning March 16
Five Sessions, Lent 2022

 

Online Scripture Study ExodusThe Exodus is a foundational event of the Old Testament giving meaning to everything else we find in it.  In Part 2 of this study we explore the final 25 chapters of this book.  We travel with the people through the long years in the desert,  learning to trust and obey God, learning the Ten Commandments from Moses and becoming a people in covenant with God.   What is the significance of these chapters for Christians today?  What can this teach us about the desert experiences of our own lives?   

Each of the five sessions, held online on Wednesday mornings, will include study, reflection, discussion, YouTubes and prayer using materials from the Little Rock Scripture Study.  S. Doris Oberembt will be your facilitator.

Bible Study discussion on Catholic Little Rock Scripture Study

 

 The Word of God is Alive and Active!

What do the the Scriptures mean for my life? How can something written 2000 years ago speak to me today? What can these strange stories, with old fashioned examples, tell me about how I should live?  The answer is that we believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well, and speaks to us through the Bible as we are able to hear.  “The Word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:22).”  In our sharing groups, we may learn about the times and places of the Bible, but more importantly, we share and pray about how these words can shape our lives today. 

The Little Rock Scripture Study has some good resources on-line at https://littlerockscripture.org/Resources/Index.

Wednesday Evening Scripture Study

The Gospel According to Luke, Part 2

Wednesday Evenings, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Central Time
Meeting on Zoom, beginning March 9
Five Sessions, Lent 2022

 

Gospel of Luke Scripture StudyJoin us in discussing the Gospel of Luke on Wednesday evenings, hosted by the Benedictine Peace Center.  The short text, The Gospel According to Luke by Father Michael Patella OSB, and the excellent resources of the Little Rock Bible Study will be our guides.  Your weekly preparation consists of reading the commentary and spending prayerful time with the study and reflection questions.  In session, we will pray, discuss, and watch a supplemental video. The sessions will be facilitated by S. Mary Jo Polak OSB, beginning March 9.   You may join even if you have not done the study of the first half of the Gospel, but we strongly recommend that you view the free introductory lecture which can be found on this page

The book description tells us that, “In Part Two of this study (Luke 12:1–24:53), readers travel with Jesus from the region of Galilee to the city of Jerusalem, where Jesus will enter into his passion and resurrection. Luke’s focus on God’s faithfulness will encourage you to trust.”   The Gospel of Luke recounts some of our favorite Gospel stories, such as the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son.

My participation in the Yankton Benedictines’ online study courses (2021 Lenten Retreat, Genesis II and Laudato Si) provided a remarkable giant step forward in my spiritual formation. All class content (assigned readings, open forums, videos and participant exchanges) reinforced God’s presence in my day-to-day life (spiritual, physical, emotional, intelectual). The courses also made me more aware of my accountabilities in relationship with God and humankind. In all three studies, facilitators created a rich learning experience, fostering open discussion, encouragement and support, while challenging the status quo to achieve a higher calling in service to the Creator and Creation. Studying with the Benectine Sisters has become a “must have” in my spiritual life. Looking forward to upcoming classes.
