Please pray for Darlene Gesh's mom, for whom Darlene had to call an ambulance this week. She has very low blood pressure and now pneumonia. There is lots of testing coming up so they are praying for some answers.

Journaling the Bible | Micah 6:6-8

What we’re wanting to do here is to shake up both over-familiarity (for those who have been reading the Bible for a long time) that can sometimes cause the Bible to feel stale, as well as to think more deeply about what some of the ancient words and metaphors really mean, and what they might look and sound like in our present day context.

Journaling the Bible - The Lord's Prayer

You might be familiar with The Lord’s Prayer, it’s one of the most frequently quoted passages of the Bible. But what good is memorizing the Bible, if it doesn’t mean anything to you?

Journaling the Bible - Psalm 23

Because of that, interacting with Scripture is like a ‘superfood’ of spiritual growth. And yet as we build the habit of reading scripture into our rhythms – which is excellent – we can start to speed over parts of the story that we’ve heard over and over again. And so sometimes what’s right in front of us can become invisible, because we’re so used to it.

This SOAP method of Bible study is a practice we often encourage to make a regular part of your time with God. Digging into and interacting with scripture is such a good spiritual-growth exercise, such a good place to catch a deeper glimpse of God. But even if you’ve never read the Bible before – don't worry; it’s not complicated and we’ll walk through it together step by step.
