January-February's Gospel Rhythm: Listening to the Scriptures consistently and meditatively
The Gospel Rhythms are six everyday habits designed to help us structure our lives around grace and mission. This year, we will review these six rhythms by focusing on one at a time, every two months. During Jan-Feb, we are focusing on the rhythm of listening to Scripture. The gospel shapes and forms our lives as we learn to listen consistently and meditatively to the Scriptures. This listening can take many different forms but each follower of Jesus needs to develop a practice of regular Scripture intake. The gift of God’s word to us needs to be received daily as our very source of life (Deut. 8:1-4). Here are some things for you to consider in starting or renewing your rhythm of listening to Scripture:
· A Plan – Commit to a plan and share it with a friend.
· A Place – Find a place in your daily/weekly schedule where you will make space to listen.
· With People - Identify people who can do this with you or whom you will regularly share updates.
Calling all for an adults only night of board games, socializing, cheese and wine at 6:30 pm on February 24th at James and Grace Kim's home. There will be games to suit all tastes and levels of competitiveness! Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
