We were excited to have our 2nd Lectionary Bible Study today, which was facilitated by Patrick C.! Last month was our first Lectionary Bible Study discussion, a ministry begun by Elise Hudson. Based on her experiences as a lector reflecting on the Scripture readings before Mass, she conceived of a regular informal, lay-led discussion of the Sunday Mass readings. Each monthly discussion is facilitated by a different lay member of the congregation, who selects whatever format they wish for the discussion, such as sharing reflections on certain words and images to questions about specific aspects of the text. The discussions are lively and thoughtful. We have people from diverse backgrounds and are enriched by the different perspectives! We can't wait until the next discussion on April 15 which will be facilitated by Mike D.
