Bible Storying and Prayer of Examen
 
Are you interested in interacting more meaningfully with the Bible? Would you like to engage with the Word more and see yourself in the story?  Join us for Storying!
 
  • A Bible story is told by memory to the group.
  • The hearers then retell the story as best as they can.
  • Someone then reads the story from the Bible.
  • The group then discusses the “what, so what, how” and the implications and applications of the story.
 
It is an effort to practice the oral tradition of the Bible and discover what familiar and not so familiar stories are saying to us.
 
We will close with the Prayer of Examen:
Relish the moments that went well and all of the gifts I have today.
Request the Spirit to lead me through my review of the day.
Review the day.
Repent of any mistakes or failures.
Resolve, in concrete ways, to live tomorrow well.
 
Prayer and Scripture reading helps us mature in spiritual growth and transformation.

 

We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday in the fellowship hall at 6 p.m.
