In this second half of Acts, we follow the missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul.  

The sessions, beginning March 1, 2023 will be facilitated by S. Mary Jo Polak OSB.  On Wednesday evenings we will share insights, watch a video, and take time to enhance our personal way of praying with the Scriptures as did the early Christians.  We will include an introduction to praying lectio divina and visio divina as ways of praying with the Scriptures.

The Word of God is Alive and Active!

What do 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 can 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.
