For the season of Lent, St. George’s United Church is walking through the 6 marks of discipleship/6 spiritual practices for following Jesus. Last Sunday we delved into the third practice, “Inspired by Reading Scripture.” The sermon can be found here.
The Bible is obviously central to practitioners of the Christian tradition, whether conservative, liberal or somewhere in between. Yet, few of us in the mainline/liberal churches read it or engage it outside of weekly worship. There are a variety of reasons for this, but one that I hear often is “I don’t know where to start.” Obviously, anyone can start at any point, but I put the following handout together as a roadmap to help in what can seem like a daunting journey.
