EDUCATION & FORMATION
The Bible study group continues to read We Make the Road by Walking by Brian D. McLaren. This study is providing tools and space to talk about life’s journey in terms of themes and teachings of the weekly lectionary readings. We enjoy this time together and welcome anyone who would like to visit and decide if this is something they would find exciting and refreshingly new.
This group breaks for the summer on June 17th. We will return from summer vacation on September 9th.
We will continue the lively discussions on the Liturgical Readings for the Day throughout the Summer months at 9 a.m. before the Eucharist Service. An average of ten people are attending each week and we are finding the
discussions thoughtful, from all different points of view, yet very much uniting us. We find that although the sermon later preached that day may take yet another approach to the readings, our previous discussion has helped us approach the sermon with a “deeper and much wider understanding.” We invite anyone to join in and share their thoughts with us. This concept very much fits in with our intention to spend the next months in discernment as to God’s Will for us as individual parishioners and as a Blessed Community of St. Bede.
Godly Play is continuing through Eastertide with stories of Jesus resurrected; Baptism, Trinity, and Gifts of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.
The last Sunday of the school year will be June 9th, Pentecost Sunday. We will begin again Sunday, September 8th.
