Back when I was an intern at Abiding Savior in Mounds View, Minnesota, we had a wonderful Thursday morning Bible Study. What great news to hear that this has been the tradition here at Christ Lutheran!
Bible reading, as I told the third graders last Sunday, is an opportunity for God to speak to us. For sure God speaks to us in many ways, but more often than not, as we open the Word, it is unmistakable. God has come among us.
It is an opportunity to be together, to pray for one another and to celebrate with one another.
Let’s do it! Let’s plan to gather on Thursdays in the Fellowship Hall here at church at 10 a.m. to see if God will speak and what God has to say. Our first meeting will be on September 27th.
Blessings & see you in church on Sunday
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them." Matthew 18:23
