Each week you will receive a scripture meditation process for church meetings. They will allow you to reflect on one of the upcoming Sunday readings for the Revised Common Lectionary. Each mediation will include a:
- group process
- short overview
- discussion questions
Each scripture meditation can be used to open committee meetings, church gatherings, governance sessions or simply as a personal devotion.
Well meaning church folk sometimes ponder the utility of engaging in scripture at a meeting. “I am only here for the church business,” is what one often hears. It is important to remind ourselves that our “business” is in all things to be faithful to our calling and stay connected to God’s Spirit, energy and direction. Otherwise we labour in vain. (Phil. 2:16)
My hope is that as clergy and lay leaders offer the Word of God in their ministry gatherings, these meditations will help enliven that process as a convenient and useful resource.
